Episode 15: Delft Trip or Rondvaart Delft


I’ve finally been to Delft before I left The Netherlands, yes, I didn’t spend much time there ,even though it was just my quick visit in Delft, at least, I’m satisfied enough I already step my feet in an inspiring city for famous Dutch painter in 17 century named Vermeer.

I wrote an essay about him on my Survey of Art subject years ago, it was the first time I admire his girl with pearl earing painting. Vermeer is known as the master of light, with its camera obscura method of painting in positioning composition and perspective effect . And, not far from the canal, I found the father of microbiology, Anthony Van Leewenhoek’s house.

In Delft, I tried a typical Dutch fish. It’s called haring fish. On my Enkhuizen trip I had eaten a smoked haring which I like it so much, but this time with all my bravery I tried to eat this uncooked fish. Can you imagine, it serves without cooking, it’s just fish and garlic on it. Are you dare???

Yuumm… yumm….. It’s so challenging. I like sushi and eat alot uncooked salmon, octopus before but believe me, this uncooked Haring is more challenging than sushi!!..I can say it’s a victory for me!!! It makes me feel like a cat… meooowww, cat …. I’m your rival now.. I love uncooked fish as you do…..😀

I then tried to explored the canal by boat. the guide is bilingual which is nice I understood what they talked about, the boat ticket costs me around 6 euro for 1 hour trip.

The weather was great, the sun is shiny… I love Delft city, it’s a beautiful city.. You must put this city on the list when you visit Holland.

And, what’s that?? Indonesia Museum in The Netherlands, I discovered Maluku Museum in Utrecht couple weeks ago. It makes me more love Holland, how do you feel, when we’re away more than 10 thousand kilometer from our home, but we still see Indonesia be mentioned as MUSEUM in people’s country. Well, I’m feeling at home in Holland. I have a question, do we have The Netherlands’ Museum in our country??

Updated: Yes we have, we can find it in Kota Toea (old town) district!!
