Alkmaar, the Netherlands

Two VFYTs came in today, both from the Netherlands. Last summer I ate at that same restaurant on the beach at Noordwijk. Writes the reader:

On the beach in noordwijk: mother & daughter enjoying their fish. 12 year old Isa *almost* tried the oyster….Next time I think she’ll eat it!

That’s my girl!

The beer from our Alkmaar reader comes from a brewery that makes Belgian-style beer under license from nearby St. Adalbert’s Abbey, a Benedictine congregation.

All of which is to say, in advance of Saturday’s World Cup quarterfinal match with Costa Rica: Hup, Holland hup!
