    Volendam workers travel outdide their village to go many smaller projects.

    To avoid the rush hours the vans leave early in the morning and return in the middle afternoon.

    Don't be surprised if you end up in a van convoy.

    Dreadful disaster

    by ATLC Written Nov 13, 2004

    On New Year's eve 2001, a fire broke out in a bar in Volendam. About 12 people were killed (either during or some time after the fire). Nearly 200 people were injured.
    It was an enormous disaster and safety regulations were questioned.
    It even got to CNN. Read page here.

    It was even more tragic because all victims were in their late teens/early 20s. Some Christmas decoration caught fire and the many people inside could not get out on time.

    There's a charity to help the victims of this fire. Please follow the link below.
