Every year in October our choir of senior citizens organizes a Pancake Party. We have to go by car to the neighbouring village of Bergambacht. The Pancake restaurant is situated next to a windmill. It is open on Tuesdays till Saturdays from 10.00 till 21.00. On weekdays mentally retarded people work here with great enthusiasm and skill. They are supervised by the permanent staff. It is a great success.
There were three different kind of pancakes: naturel, pancakes with bacon and pancakes with cheese.
Further more we could have a salad , a meat dish, apples and raisins compote and a spicy sauce.
A meal is important but more important is the social side of meeting people of our age. We talked a lot, which we cannot do during choir practice.

The restaurant is called "Onder de Molen", which means : "Under the Mill".
This mill houses a souvenirshop, and of course we wanted to see what we could buy there.
This is what I bought:
Bergambacht is the name of the village. It 's a typically Dutch place.
