Cape Horn Was Invented Here

Hoorn, The Netherlands

Hoorn is a municipality and a town in the Netherlands, in the province of Noord Holland.

The Netherlands have 12 provinces. Two of them are North and South Holland (kind of like North and South Dakota without the buffalo).

We should see Belgium in a day or two. The tulips are blooming.

Cape Horn, the most southerly point of the Americas, was named after the town by Willem Schouten, who rounded it in 1616.
