Westerbork Concentration Camp- 2014

What has now been turned into an expansive park featuring 6 kilometer walking path, the remains of Camp Westerbork are eerie at best. Though no exterminations took place here because it was a transit camp, it is believed that Anne Frank and her Father were held here briefly before being moved to another camp.

Near the end of the park was a small collection of bricks held on end, representing each of the people from the Netherlands who had been killed by the nazis. The different lengths representing the ages of the various prisoners.

It was a chilling, eye opening experience to stand on these grounds and realize what had happened in that very spot so many years before.

Giethoorn- The Netherlands -

A gorgeous little village accessible by either walking or boating through. Full of thatched roofs and beautiful homes that you can walk by along the canals that replace streets.

Regen- Rain

Just a couple shots of the flowers and the rain from yesterday, the weather has been pretty autumnal so far here in Leeuwarden. Kind of a nice change of pace from the heat of Oregon.

My trip to London! :)

What a crazy weekend! Two Halloween parties featuring kitty Alee and dead Alee. Tonight was the Guy Fawkes celebration which includes a torch led procession to a HUGE bonfire and fireworks. There must have been 50,000 people there. Also featured in this post, my friends Holly and Davidson!
