    I enjoyed reading about Edam and its history. The cheese church certainly would be a one of a kind attraction, too!

    Nice piece on Edam - there is indeed much more than cheese. I have visited there many times, but have never managed to see the market yet- De goreten van Steve

    What a neat little town...yes, I looove the cheese church, what can I say?!? Zaanse Schans was Cheesetown for me until now, but I'll definitely put Edam on my list for the next time I'm in the Netherlands...;-)

    A cheese church... so many bad jokes come to mind, I must refrain. How odd! Lovely page...

    What an amazing church.. shame about the beetle :-) Didn't know the origin of 'stinking rich'...lol. Great traditions with the cheese.

    I don't think that I want to be "stinking rich", filthy, yes! Great page, Margaret.
