The Hague: Day 1

This is the last post of the day, I promise! The internet in our last few hotels has been really slow, so I've been procrastinating updating the blog. But from here on out, hopefully I'll be better.

Day 1: 

So, our original reason for going to The Hague was to go to the temple. Unfortunately, when we called the temple to make sure that there was a time we could come, they told us that they are only open Thursdays through Saturdays, even though on the website they said they do things on Tuesdays and Wednesdays too. I guess it’s a really small temple, so they aren’t open half as much. We were pretty disappointed though.

Even so, The Hague is a really cute area. We walked through a lot of the city today and saw the Palace:

And the Parliament building:

We also randomly found a really cool flea market that we walked through. They had a lot of cool jewelry and other antique trinkets:

Then, we walked through the big shopping area:

After that, we decided that we wanted to see a movie. Everyone has been talking about how amazing Inception is, and we found a movie theater close by, so we went to see it. And it was amazing. And the Dutch subtitles didn’t bother me like I thought they would. It was another good day. Only 5 days left till we come back to the states!
