Another bridge from the archives

Moordrecht is about 30kms from The Hague, and a neighbour of Gouda, where the eponymous cheese is still traded using a ritual system called handjeklap in which buyers and sellers clap each other’s hands and shout prices.


This is the Jan Thijssenweg Bridge in Moordrecht.  Jan Thijssen was a Dutch resistance fighter during the Second World War.

    Nice bridge – though I am glad I can buy gouda here without the traditional clapping and shouting 🙂
