Wednesday's Window to the World : Leiden, The Netherlands

The view from my window in my little historic square of Leiden, the Netherlands. You can make out #5 which is the Latin School where Rembrandt studied while enrolled here at Leiden University... and of course, you can't miss the 600 year old church. The building on the right is part of the old "Gerecht" (Court of Law) in the City Center of Leiden. What you can't see is the courtyard directly between us where they used to perform the public hangings to deter other criminals!
