The Post travels to the Netherlands

Last August, Herm and Rosemary Standhardt travelled to the Netherlands  and took a Post with them. They stayed several days in Amsterdam. 

One of the sites they visited was the Amsterdam Central Train Station, which they said is a huge station built in 1890s and handles over 200,00 travelers a day. 

“Next to this station are many, many bicycles,” said Herm. “People who commute per train from this station park their older bikes there.

They also visited the Rembrandt Plein or Rembrandt Square. “All the painted characters in Rembrandts most famous painting,

the Nachtwacht or the Nightwatch, were cast in bronze and posted three-dimensional,” he explained.

Sounds like you guys had a great time. Thanks so much for taking us with you!

The Post travels to Africa

Paul and Judy Stark, of Cedar Springs, and Dave and Jan Malmo, of Howard City, had an amazing opportunity to visit an African Masai tribe as part of a 2-1/2 week trip to Tanzania, Africa in May. 

“These people live today the same as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago,” explained Jan.

The friends spent nine days on safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater viewing dozens of indigenous animals and birds. “The wildebeest migration was awesome as thousands of these animals ran for miles and miles in lines,” said Jan. 

They also saw herds of zebra, cape buffalo, lions, elephants, baboons, rhinos, leopards and giraffes. And a curious cheetah jumped up on their safari vehicle to have a look around! “That was beyond exciting since the roof and all the windows were open!” she remarked.

The Starks and Malmos felt blessed to have such an awesome opportunity.
