Netherlands  3: North Holland (cc)

Exploring North Holland, a province of the Netherlands, offers us a chance to learn about Holland's "Golden Age." Located in the northwest part of the country, it is divided into 65 gemeente or local governments. In the fishing village of Volendam, on the IJsselmeer coast, one can still see villagers wearing traditional costume and Dutch wooden clogs. One of the harbor towns of the Dutch East India Company, Enkhuizen played an important part in the Dutch struggle for independence and today retains numerous buildings of the 16th and 17th centuries. The Zuiderzeemuseum is an open-air museum that reflects life in the villages around the Zuiderzee during the Middle Ages. Schiphol Airport, in Amsterdam, is one of the busiest and most user-friendly airports in the world. Our last stop is the small village of Edam, which is world famous for its sweet-milk cheese. 04/10D/CC Closed-Captioned IJSCA 15 min.
