So true!

Kamp Vught concentration camp. A terrible time in history.

Vanmoof bike - the beer can bike

It was another nice weather day so another long bike ride was in order. We followed the fietspad to town and stumbled upon Kamp Vught National Monument, a World War II concentration camp. Over 31,000 people were held here during the war. It was quite moving to tour the monument. There are so many monuments, cemeteries and other reminders of the war here, something we don’t see back home. We rode to the town of Den Bosch where we enjoyed sitting at an outside café, sampling some local brew and watching the people in the town square. The real name of the town is ‘S-Hertogenbosch but that is so long, the name was changed to Den Bosch. Our campground for the night was in a farmer’s field. There were chickens, goats, sheep, and three cute little miniature horses. We have run across several campgrounds on farms. It’s just a way for farmers to earn a little more money. We are so far north that it stays light until after 10 pm.
