Den Haag Blaag

IMG_1937

We took a long weekend trip to Den Haag, a modern city not nearly as overrun with tourists as others nearby (...).  It was a lovely and relaxing weekend.

Finally, some decent sushi in Europe at: NOH
Absolutely wonderful Sicilian meal on V-Day at: Vino e Cucina (thanks for taking such good care of us! Cannolo and Muscato - molto buono).
A nice walk from the city center, through the park to the beach "Scheveningen".
and of course, nice shopping (Dutch candy is so sweet and scrumptous).

Other than that, we just sat around drinking coffee in cafes, playing chess, browsing English bookstores, buying Dutch cheese, and taking in the city.  Nice, relaxing place.  Actually, it was a bit of a shock to be back in an "English friendly" area after our initial 6 weeks in Germany.
