25 years ago in Europe: Cheesy, but great cheese in Alkmaar

I know (now) that they do it all for the tourists. But it’s all about cheese, so why can’t it be cheesy?! This picture is from my childhood visit to the Alkmaar cheese market in the Netherlands. It fascinated me and definitely provided some enduring memories – I’d never seen such a thing!

The memories were so strong that I tried to go again just a few years ago but a car breakdown left me stranded on the German side of the border while the cheese was being carried about. I’d still like to try again some time!
