A friend from Dordrecht came over for dinner yesterday and told us about a new attraction in his home town.
The story goes like this: after a series of prophetic dreams and visions, a carpenter from North Holland felt the need to build a 1:1 version of Noah's Ark. To figure out what the "original" version's sizes were, he "researched the Bible, various books on the Ark and DVD's".
Whatever one's opinion about the slight wackiness and maybe hidden agenda of the whole story, it looks like a fun day out especially for people with kids, since it hosts two theatres, a self service restaurant called "Vrouwe Noach", an "historical display" and "life sized polyester" animals (plus real ones too).
Besides, it seems to be a very beautifully built boat.
