... instead of calling Amsterdam the Venice of the North, they should be calling Venice the Amsterdam of the South. Who knew?? It was a fun and interesting way to spend 3 hours.

This 13th century town used to be on an island but has since been linked to the mainland by a dyke built in 1957. Here we saw wooden shoes made. Originally done by hand, it now is a very simple three step process and only took about three minutes to do. Then have to be dried for two weeks before they can be polished and decorated. Drove a short distance to Zaanse ...
