K is for klomp and kermis
What would the Netherlands be without its klompen, or clogs. You can see them in all the tourist shops – either wooden or a fluffy slipper alternative. And I have once spotted someone in the supermarket wearing them. But at least in this region they are uncommon.
Kermis is the funfair – this comes to town a couple of times a year. I had a funny conversation with a friend who had mis-translated it to English and was telling me how her daughter was now a big fan of the chemists after their visit at the weekend. Not quite what she meant!
