Thank you Steve,

I am happy that you visited, and liked it.
This is the traditional method of carrying the cheeses (approx 120kg) from the market hall to the canal boats. These days they don't have canal boats, so the carry them across the car park like this and load them on a cart.
Don't ask why they can't bring the cart closer, so they don't have to carry them so far!!!!

My Dear Füsun,

Thank you so much for visiting.
This is a tradition which draws crowds every week when it happens. I will come up with a few more from here eventually.

Love Peter

Hi Alan,

Thank you so much for your visit here! You are right, I have not been very active recently.
I took the motorbike over to Holland for a few weeks, and only just got back. Unfortunately no room for one of these big cheeses, but I did manage some smaller ones.

More pictures to follow in due course.

Best Wishes
