Cheese farm- Zaanse Schans, Old Dutch CityFirst we visited the cheese farm of Old Dutch city. I got down from the bus to this fascinating and calming sight, away from hustles and bustles of city. A place that looked right out of wall hanging.
A countryside holiday cannot get better than this!When I was shuttering the landscape, a girl from our group approached me and asked whether I could take a photo for her. I obliged with a smile and also asked her to stand in different way so the lighting would be proper. She was happy with the result and offered to do the same for me.

It took 10 littler of milk to make the cheese on those standsWe went inside a small house where the cheese is still made in the traditional way. The Dutch are world-famous for their long history of cheese-making, the famous cheese here are Gouda (pronounced "KHOW-duh" not "GOO-duh" I was told) or Edam both are named after Dutch towns. A lady in traditional outfit explained to us how cheese is made with so many minute details like temperature and preservatives.
The cheese brought here can be kept up to 3 years without refrigeration.
Later we walked around taking photos of the Old Dutch city and Windmills.
These guys still rocks!
