|Subject: Alkmar, The Hague, Maastricht|
The cheese market in Alkmaar is very interesting. To watch how they load up
the cheese on the truck, wearing costumes that remind me of Italian
gondoliers, is a show in itself. I think it's held only on Friday mornings.
Someone mentioned The Hague. If you go there, don't miss Madurodam, the miniature city. There are miniature replicas of many well-known landmarks in Amsterdam (I think of other Dutch cities too).
Maastricht, in the south of the country, is a lovely town to visit. Also Brussels is a lovely city, and isn't very far away.
