As promised, a photo of the castle that I visited in Santpoort: Brederode castle. Originally built in the 13th century by William I of Brederode, it has been destroyed and rebuilt many times, until it was abandoned completely in 1679.

I was in Santpoort last Saturday, a small town between Haarlem and the sea, to visit the local castle (photos coming soon). I was looking for a place where I would have a good, unobstructed view of the castle. I did not find what I was looking for, but I did find lots of snails, large and small. So today I share a photo of one of those snails. Enjoy!

Philippine Jeepney

I spotted this colorful jeepney in a Visayan town. They're not hard to spot: In larger towns and cities in the Philippines you will see these jeepneys everywhere.
