Closing the Loop

August 28, 2011 - Edam, Netherlands

Five months ago when we left Amsterdam the first camp ground we went to was in a small town called Edam. Today, we returned to this same campsite in order to prepare for our departure on Wednesday. There are a number of reasons for this. The first is that we are within 20 minutes of where we have to drop off the camper on Tuesday. The second is that although we have travelled many lands and seen many town Edam is still the prettiest. It is an old town full of little houses with every street paralleling a canal. After we had settled into the campsite and had lunch we walked into town to partake in a local street festival going on. It was a standard type festival in many ways – with rides and carnival food. The amazing thing was that all these massive rides are squeezed into the small squares available. How they managed to get there through the small narrow streets is a mystery.
