Zaanse Schans

While in the North of Holland we also went to visit the Zaanse Schans. Here we are approaching the Zaanse Schans, a very touristic place just above Amsterdam. Lots of tourists come here to see how people lived in this area long ago. There are many windmills and lots of charasteristic green wooden houses. Over here also lots of Dutch souvenirs are sold. On the next picture you can see Delfts blue tiles, tulips made of silk (to last forever), little windmills and little wooden shoes.

In this large wooden shoe many tourists must have taken a picture. When we were there the wooden shoe was occupied most of the time. Here our daughter has her picture taken in the wooden shoe.
