Postcard from Gouda, NL

A fine spring day in Gouda, town that has given its name to the famous Dutch cheese. Nowadays Gouda is a historic destination for a relaxing day out from the steel and glass architecture of Rotterdam. We enjoyed coffee in the sunshine in the market place dominated by the medieval town hall and the weighing hall. Both the town hall and the nearby St. Jans Kerk have chiming carillon clocks.
