Tourism in a Supermarket
I was delighted one day early in our birding and museum trip to Holland when our tour guides decided to stop our bus at a supermarket so that they could buy snacks, water bottles, and other things we needed. Going into supermarkets is definitely fun. I tried to capture some images that showed that I found things both familiar and somewhat different. In case you were wondering: we had a bus with around 26 seats for the driver, two (or sometimes three) guides and eleven participants, so it was quite comfortable!
|Bonne Maman from France is my favorite jam. All the familiar flavors were available, and also hazelnut spread!|
|Dutch cheese was featured, of course, including lots of uncut wheels of Gouda and other cheeses.|
High-End Shopping in Amsterdam
I’ve already mentioned that we strolled down a very fancy shopping street near the museums. Here are a few more pictures of the colorful shop windows.

I didn’t pass up any opportunities to buy magnets at the shops in the museums. Here is one more image from the Van Gogh Museum Shop.

Full disclosure: I bought the socks.
