Market Square in Gouda


I imagine that the book “The Cow Who Fell in the Canal” was set here in this market square. We saw no cheese, nor straw hats with ribbons, but we did find delicious fries, piping hot, with mayo, and croquettes. 

I told Kevin, “This is how to make Mama happy, right here. Give her a croquette.”
So good. 

We were there at two minutes after 2, the perfect time to see the carillon. The bells above played a tune, and Count Floris V (1272) came out to grant the people of Gouda a city charter. You can watch it here:
