I hope everybody had a lovely Monday!?!
I would have posted earlier, but right after my mishap last night with the deletion of another post, I accidentally knocked over my glass of wine right across the God Damn laptop!!!!!!! Luckily I reacted quick and drained it...into my mouth of course , wiped it off and let it to dry out. Voila......were back in business!!!!
Now on to our regular business. For breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack the Dutch are very passionate about their cheese!!! So when in Amsterdam, say cheese!!!!
It goes without saying that Alkmaar’s cheese market which we visited one day while there is the number one tourist attraction in the city. Every Friday from 10:00, from April through September, you can watch cheese being traded in the same time-honoured way as it has been for centuries. If you are visiting Alkmaar, this colourful and folkloric spectacle on the beautiful Waagplein (‘weighing square’) is an absolute must-see.The cheese market would not be the spectacle it is without its cheese carriers. Still, the ‘placers’, ‘throwers’ and ‘scale masters’ are important people on the market. They are all part of a guild with many traditions. All in all, the Alkmaar cheese market is a fascinating spectacle.
And we all know I love me some cheese!
