Netherlands - Edam

Even though there is a town in the Netherlands called Edam, and a cheese that originates from the Netherlands called Edam, apparently no-one actually eats Edam in the Netherlands any more. The red-wax covered cheeses are almost entirely exported, and often actually made in Germany.

This didn't prevent the town of Edam from being a very pleasant stop for a night, with the usual assortment of canals, bridges, churches and a lovely hotel with an enormous and delicious breakfast (Linda's fine work once again to find the hotel).

We spent our time there wandering the streets and dropping into food and gadget shops. The weather was really nice and it was great just to be outside in it.
