Venlo

13 Aug

Ieri am plecat sa vizitam Floriade, expozitia de flori si gradini care are loc in Olanda o data la 10 ani. Ajunsi la parcare, am vazut o coada de cateva sute de oameni care se indreptau spre cateva autobuze care sa ii transporte pana la intrarea expozitiei. Cum era cald si soare, nu ne-a atras deloc ideea de a astepta atata timp pana sa putem intra, asa ca am abandonat planul si am ajuns in Venlo, orasul in exteriorul caruia se afla expozitia.

Asa ca in loc de poze cu flori, am cateva poze din Venlo, vedeti mai jos.

Venlo este un oras aproape de granita cu Germania, drept pentru care e vizitat de multi germani, am auzit mai multa germana decat olandeza in jur.

Orasul se afla in provincia Limburg, cunoscuta pentru tartele numite vlaai, asa ca vlaai am mancat si noi, cum sa ratam ocazia? 🙂

**********************************************************************************************

Yesterday we left home to go visit the Floriade, the flower and garden exhibition held in the Netherlands once every 10 years. Arrived at the parking place, we saw a queue of a few hundred persons walking towards the few buses that would transport them to the entrance of the exhibition. As it was warm and sunny, we didn’t feel like waiting such a long time just to get to the entrance, so we gave up the plan and we went to Venlo, the town which hosts the exhibition.

So instead of flowers, here are a few pictures from Venlo.

Venlo is a town close to the German border, that is why it is visited by many Germans, I heard more German being spoken around me than Dutch.

The town is part of the province Limburg, which is known for its cakes named vlaai, so vlaai we ate, how could we miss the opportunity? 🙂

Vlaai de capsuni / Strawberry vlaai

Vlaai de cirese cu spuma de albusuri / Cherry vlaai with beaten egg whites topping

Primaria / City hall

O “casuta” pentru pasari gigantica / A huge bird box

O cladire veche / An old building

“Wildbreien” (in fata magazinului de lana) 🙂 /

“Wildbreien” (in front of the wool shop) 🙂

Picturi murale / Murals

Si, in sfarsit, niste flori:) / And finally some flowers 🙂
