036: Seagull-stained benches
The seat of the Dutch Government is located at the Binnenhof in the city of The Hague. Undoubtedly, many parliament members must have visited the nearby ‘Haringkraam Buitenhof”, where they can eat fresh, raw herring, served with onions. The herring snackbar is visible behind the bench and the tree. Some sites that recommend the snackbar warn you for the seagulls that may like your herring. The white stains the cover the bench and the surrounding tiles, must come from them, and from pigeons. I would not recommend you to have a seat on this bench.
