    This museum is dedicated to Markelo traditional costume. Two ladies tell you a story about how it's been made, how it is preserved and how it's been given from generation to generation.

    This windmill is somewhat a symbol of Markelo. It was used for milling wheat, corn and other grains, but nowadays serves as a museum, though it is still functional.

    This "bar" is actually a huge building with several theme rooms with music from 80's, 90's, then there are rooms with modern music, disco dance floors, a big restaurant, and a part for the club music.

    Something for everyone.

    People call this "Farmer's golf". The golf club is actually a wooden stick on end of which is a traditional Dutch wooden shoe, and "golf ball" is actually a ball size like those used in handball.

    On the field there are many obstacles you need to pass to finish the stage, and on the end of each stage is a bucket you need to put the ball in.

    It was very funny watching us how we try to play it, especially when I threw the ball in some lady's potatoes :D

    Oh well, I managed to get away with it.

    Later, we ate delicious pancakes with filled with syrup. Mmmm
