Visited Alkmaar Cheese Market.

Every Friday there is a show for the public.  They show how they weigh the cheese and how they check the quality of the cheese.    It rained very hard in Delft on this day.

Went to Zaandam to see the windmills. The area where they stand are called Zaanse Schans   We witnessed a worker making oil from sand and peanuts.  This oil is then sold to the public.

Went to visit the clogg factory and saw how cloggs are made.  Then visited the clogg shop.

Drove to Amsterdam around the Grachten Gordel (canal belt that surrounds the city centre)
Went over the Heerengracht and Prinsengracht.  Wanted to visit the Anne Frank house, but there was a long queue of visitors. Saw the Royal Palace on the Dam Square. 

Walked through the Red Light District.  Our eyes nearly popped out of our heads.

We then ate kroket, another traditional snack.
