Here we have the weekly cheese auction, in Gouda's principle square behind the town hall……the seller is on the left, and the buyer on the right, with the auctioneer, microphone in hand, calling the bids, and with each bid the contestants slap hands. A very enjoyable ceremony to observe.

Voici la vente d'enchères hebdomadaire de fromage, dans la place du marché, près de la mairie en Gouda……..le vendeur à gauche, et l'acheteur à droit, avec le commissaire-priser, tenant le microphone, appelant les offres, et avec chaque offres, les concurrents claque les mains. Un événement à voir.

This is a nice shot of the cheese market in Gouda. The cheese wheels give us many nice points of interest in the scene. The closeup of the buyer and seller is great. As I remember there was stalls where you could buy some really good syrup waffles in this market.

Any idea where I can pick up some cheese, I have a burger that's just needing some to top it off?? :) And as the Dutch are so very well associated with the color orange, well...this is an apt image! And humorously timed I might add, is this some type of new handshake, the open palm variety...or just some hip, vendor/puchaser thing? lol
A superb look into the daily events of this town and its people, traditional and well layed out...literally! With the white jacket, this seller could be perceived as doctor...I can just hear him saying "Take two of these (cheese wheels) and call me in the morning." Have a good one. Take it cheesy...I mean, easy.
