Notes from Das Boot 217

Tuesday, 2/10/15, Deventer Holland

We had most of the day off yesterday here in the quaint burg of Deventer. The streets were empty and most everything was closed, so it looked like an elaborate back lot of a Dutch-centric movie studio. The hotel was also quaint and the beds were of the “giant marshmallow surprise” variety. You sink into a way too soft bed until your spine is surprised by a pointy bed spring, gah!.
The big attraction of the town is the famous boiling pot at De Waag. In 1434 a man was boiled to death in the pot for making fake coins

The boiling pot. That’ll learn ya.
