Two weeks ago we visited our family in the beautiful old city of Alkmaar, THE cheesecity in the Netherlands. I am sure people who visited Holland have visited the cheesemarket. Thousands of tourists come to see the cheesemarket in the summer. On my few pictures you can see the cheesebearers who transport the cheeses from the markets to the buyers. It is fun to watch them walking . More pictures I made when walking through the beautiful center of the city, wooden shoes and tulips on the market, the canals with the tourist boats and the world famous street organ with its music. I will try to get some streetorgan music on my blog for today. I made many more photo's that day so these next few days I wil post more from Alkmaar with its beautiful old buildings, canals and narrow streets.
For Blue Monday more photo's I took in Alkmaar while touring through the canals in an open tourist boat.
As you can see some bridges open to let the boats pass by but some bridges don't open so the boat goes under the bridges. This is so much fun because every time we got to sail under the bridges we had to bend our heads otherwise we would hit our heads.You can see how low they are on the right bottom picture. And there were about 20 of them.
