About Tulips ...
Picture taken in Alkmaar yesterday
"In the 1630s, the first, and arguably the most remarkable example of a speculative bubble took place in present-day Holland. Part of what makes this speculative episode so extraordinary, comes down to the asset that was driving the speculation – tulips. Tulipmania, the name of this particular speculative event, was a brief period in Dutch history where the price of tulip bulbs reached preposterous highs, before crashing back down to reality."
On a tour around the IJsselmeer, we did make a short stop in Alkmaar without detailed preparation yesterday 😎, so we missed the famous cheese market by one hour, what was not really an issue. Doing something in contrast to the other tourists means it is less crowded.
