Alkmaar's Cheese Market & Beautiful Haarlem
in love
June 19, 2009

Alkmaar is the city in the north of Netherlands and widely known as the place for traditional cheese market in the past.

The train station in Alkmaar, I continued by bus to go to the cheese market which only held every Friday in spring and summer.

When I arrived there at 10.30 am, the event was already begun and surrounded by so many tourists.

"Kaas meisjes" are ready to serve you the best cheese in the world :D

This is how they lift-up the cheeses to get weighing.

This lady couldn't wait to be lifted-up too...:P

Visiting the cheese museum.

Full of sale, branded store, really promising for shopaholics!

My journey headed to Haarlem, another beautiful city. I always remember Haarlem as the city of Daisy (a romantic Korean movie).

The secret garden in Haarlem, very interesting.

The groete kurk in het centrum.

Some random pictures I found in this city, cool :P

The unique shop, they sell vintage stuffs and beyond my imagination...I love it!

I really enjoy this journey. One thing I regret is that I couldn't find any open kebab store when I got hungry there :(
