Den Hague, The Netherlands

The streets of Amsterdam had offered us magnets, history, the canals and chaos. The streets of Haarlem were quaint but deserted. And hence, we did not expect to find this masterpiece on the streets of Den Hague, a place known for its Embassies and the International Court of Justice.

And why we call this a masterpiece is for the simple reason that the old man painting it was doing it in freehand and on wood.

Yes, this picture is not one of a prominent location in the country, but the sheer passion that the artist put behind creating this was worth breaking the rule. With pictures painted on all sizes of thin wooden sheets, this was the smallest one we could purchase, also keeping in mind that our flight was scheduled to depart in a little more than eight hours.
