De Rijp

On Saturday Nov 13th 2004 I travelled to De Rijp in the province Noord-Holland (north of Amsterdam) for a seminar about Arctic Travel. Little did I know I would end up in this charming little village with enormous history.
I'll try to convey a bit about that history which I picked up in the mere hours that I was there.

    Oh wow de Ridgip! I remember this charming Noord Hollandsche hamlet from way back in the 1980's when I was introduced to the Ridgip (Rijp) by my college housemate's sister's father. And was back as recently as 2003 where a dutch wedding was taking place

    Oh wow. It is so pretty. And interesting. And historic. (Even if a bit mouldy.)

    Ah! you too are fascinated by sluices ? What i like most is the noise of the waterfalls. De Rijp seems beautiful. I see it's still keeping its original stamp.
