Elburg in China
After the orchid house we set off for Elburg and another aire on a marina. This is a lovely spot but unfortunately they need to extend the marina and so the aire is going! If we were to come back next year it would all be under water. Hopefully they will provide another area for us campers to stay in another part of town but nothing is planned at the moment.
The town itself is set on an island, completely surrounded by a moat, with big walled gates.
We were surprised at the set up in the fish shops. On the front counter is all the wet fish that you can buy and take home BUT most people chose their fish and they had them battered and fried at the back of the shop, taking away the fish ready to eat on a plastic tray like a fish and chip shop back home but without the chips!
We did think about having fish and chips for our supper last night but we couldn’t quite work out the pricing and the different fishes so opted for a Chinese instead. Well Chinese take away food is a law unto itself and is difficult to fatham but in Dutch? We ordered a set meal for 2………………
With two full carrier bags it was more like a set meal for 20! Guess what we had for dinner again this evening?
