We left Flanders and Belgium for Holland, with a visit in the town of Delft, famous for its pottery and tiles, and for the painter Jan Vermeer, and we visited the Vermeer Centrum while there. We also viewed the New and Old Church, with its tombs of William the Silent, the House of Orange, and Hugo Grotius.
