Ian and I visited a town called Alkmaar while we were on holiday.
Every week they hold cheese auctions in the town centre and have market stalls lined up selling almost every kind of cheese you can think of.
We arrived too late to see the whole of the 1/2 acre site covered in cheeses but these piccies give you an idea of what the auctions were like.
By the way, Ina's father used to work as a chesseman and carried the cheeses the way these two men are doing.
The costumes aren't just worn for the sake of the tourists these are the actual uniforms of the Dutch cheese workers.
