This picture was submitted by an independent contributor. He writes: "[Here] the typical flat Dutch landscape can be seen in all its glory. Grazing cows and sheep, a traditional windmill and old farmhouses and fields stretch as far as the eye can see. The famous Dutch 17th century painter Rembrandt is said to have gone to this location often to make sketches for his paintings. A statue (not in the picture) has been erected here in his honor, and it is a well-visited spot by foreign tourgroups. This urinal has undoubtedly provided a relief for many visitors but is is to be feared that Rembrandt himself did not live to use this urinal."
