Why I am in love with Gouda, the Netherlands

Gouda is a small city of 71,000 in the province of South Holland, the Netherlands. It's the regional centre of an area of approximately 130,000 inhabitants. I've been living there for all 20 years of my life, and I hope I'll never move. I don't need skyscrapers to be happy, a stroll through Gouda can move me to tears of happiness. Today, the light was exceptionally beautiful so I went to the historic city centre to shoot some pictures.

I suggest you listen to 'What a Wonderful World' by Louis Armstrong while watching these pictures. I did while taking them.

Thanks!

#41 is the entrance of the cheese museum

Every Thursday there's a cheese market if you would like to see that.
Tourist information: http://www.vvvgouda.nl/index.php?id=13&lang=13 (available in a horrible form of Dunglish )

I don't like the cheese though
