Somewhere Street - Haarlem, The Netherlands
Oh how. Beautiful. The sky is so, blue and the pasture, so green. Are. Those cows or. Horses I. Mean. The Netherlands, on my way to Harlem, a city, with a rich history dating, back to medieval times. It's. Said to be an enchanting, city of canals, and greenery. I'm. Here at, Harlan railway station. There. Sure are a lot of people getting on and off the train. I. Bet. This building, has an interesting history. The. First railway built in the Netherlands, ran between Amsterdam and, Harlem. The. Station is a national, heritage site of the Netherlands. In order to get out of the station it seems I need to go underground. That. Looks like a bicycle shop am i right. It's. Now 8:30, in the morning. The. People coming the other way are probably commuters, on their way to work. Wow. There sure are a lot of bicycles, here oh. It's. A parking, lot for, bikes I wonder. How many are here, 4,000. 10,000. I've. Heard that the Netherlands is a bicycle, country but this is quite amazing. Most. Of them seem to be standard, bikes not, mountain bikes or racing bikes practical. Bikes. And the, entrance is sloped which makes it easy access, for the bikes those. People are really screening, in. Groups. For the young. Finally. Made it outside. This. Part of the city doesn't feel like a downtown, area the. Streets and buildings seem to be color-coordinated. Creating, a calming, effect. Let's. See I'll check the map. Harlem. Is bordered, by rivers, and canals I just. Slipped the station so I'm here. Due. South is the center of the city and the Cathedral, of st. boffo I think. I'll head that way. And. Here's. A canal, how. Fabulous, a. Lot. Of bicycles, are parked here too. Oh the. Street separates. Hmm. Which way is the Cathedral, of st. boffo I think, I'll go this way. Sounds. Like church bells. Certainly. Fits with the atmosphere, of the city. Ah, I. Can see a steeple, I bet it's the Cathedral, of st. bothell. What. A magnificent. Building I'm. Sure it has a remarkable. History let, me check the guidebook. A. Masterpiece. And Gothic architecture, constructed. Between 13, 90 and 1530. The. Pipe organ installed here has been played by Honda Mozart, and Mendelssohn, that's, pretty awesome. And there's, a Plaza right beside, it look. At that little girl standing in the middle she's, so cute. All. The surrounding, buildings look, significant, as well oh. Are.

Are plants in front of all the buildings, it, looks like a park. Wait. Oh I, thought it was a birdhouse but, it seems to be a bookcase. Is. It some kind of book exchange. I. See.

Aboard my canal cruise boat my name is your own huffin I'll take you on a tour of the historical, city of Haarlem. The. Canal cruise will whoa watch. Your head. Now. The cruise will take you around the historic city of Haarlem. Did. You know that most of the land here in the northern part of the Netherlands is below sea level. From, here you can see how the inside, of the city is different, from the outside on, your. Left is the old city you can see that the left bank is higher than the right bank the, original. City was built on a hill. That's. Due to the rivers barnum which flows through the city sand. Deposited. By the river created. The hill. This. Topographical. Advantage made, harlem a northern, urban hub of the netherlands during the Middle Ages the. City, prospered due, to the trade brought, by boats navigating, the, river. Though. The river enabled, the city to flourish economically, it. Also proved, to be a constant, threat. To, the east of the city there, was a large body of water called Harlem Lake, this. Lake often flooded eroding, the hill on which Harlem, sat. The. City was in danger of being submerged, in. Order. To prevent this a network. Of canals was constructed, and the water was drained from the lake creating, dry land. Utilizing. Natural wind, windmills. Helped drain the water from the land at, the peak of this project, as many as 10,000. Windmills were operating, across the country. This. Is how it was done. The. Harlem Lake land reclamation project. Was completed about a hundred and seventy years, ago almost, entirely, removing, the threat of flooding. However. The. Struggle with water still continues, to this day. These. Days there, are more than 2,000. Large-scale, pumps, rather than windmills, pumping. Out water from the land. Thank, you for joining me today whenever. You visit Harlem, please take a canal cruise of the city. It's. Now 11:30. Hello. I think, I'll check my map beginning. At the railway station I, walked up to the Cathedral, of st. boffo and then down the path of all the plants, now. I'm on the bank of the river spar, named. There's. Some pretty big boats docked here. That. Lady was in quite a rush I wonder. Where she's headed. Ah. She. Made a turn. She's. Gotten off on the bridge. And. She's. Parking, her bike. Hmm. What's up there a. White. Box. She. Opened it what, is she doing. Ah. She's. Raising, the bridge. It's. A drawbridge. It, keeps going up. Environment. Oh she's I. Wonder. Who she's talking to. Oh. Sailboats. If.

Cheese, fondue, made, of only Dutch Gouda, cheese the. Flavour is mesmerizing. Gouda. Cheese has a strong, but appealing, flavor. White. Wine is added to the cheese producing. A rich taste and aroma. For. Best results, add wine and stir it slowly without. Bringing the cheese to a boil. The, cheese becomes more flavorful, than if it is eaten straight oh. This. Is irresistible, get, a thick coat of it on the bread. Make. Sure to enjoy the cuisine when you visit Harlem here's, to you from the flower girls. Okay. I cross. The drawbridge met.
