Netherlands 9 August: Gouda - Waalre
One of the cheese sellers we met told us that when he tastes a cheese, he knows which farmer has made it. This man sells 350.000 kilograms of Gouda cheese per day. That's right, per day.
The traditional game of negotiating cheese prices between the farmer and the seller. It happened like this for many centuries.
This Czech family is now visiting Holland, but they saw the Peace Run last year when it came through their own town.
The city also provided us with a delicious lunch. Many thanks to Margot Bijleveld for arranging the meeting.
Niek and Jenneke are a lovely Dutch couple who have already hosted the Peace Run many times. They are true friends of the Peace Run.
