It was safe to say our Glorious Leader was looking forward to the tour

And the Lord smiled, for they had reached the Promised Land.

How did we end up staying here? It felt like we'd stumbled into a Living Etc photo shoot

Café Botteltje - home of possibly the best pub in the world

Inside Café Botteltje

10 beers on draft, 400 in the fridge. Heaven
