023: Cheese for sale
It might be a cliche, but the Dutch love cheese. They eat a lot of their favorite Gouda, Edam, Leiden, Maasdam cheese, for example. And many people all around the world love eating Dutch cheese. In Brazil, Dutch cheese is very expensive. You might pay about 50 euros for a kilo of old cheese. You can imagine that Brazilians in Amsterdam will be amazed to see big wheels of cheese on a simple stand in a street in downtown Amsterdam. Such big wheels of more than ten kilos must be worth a fortune, and they are left there unprotected, in open air! Until recently, it was quite hard to find Dutch cheese in Brazilian supermarkets. But now, they even may offer big discounts on small chunks of delicious of Maasdam or Gouda cheese! You can also find cheese of the Gouda type that is produced in Argentina or even in Brazil.
