A child-led tour of Haarlem in the Netherlands
Ike is an 11-year-old girl with many passions and interests. She loves the traditional Dutch architecture of her hometown and happily rides her bike around the streets, pointing out the canals and bridges.
Like many Dutch towns, Haarlem has traditional cheese shops and flower stalls. The Haarlem area is famous for flowers and bulbs. Ike introduces us to a flower grower who is tending the bulbs in his fields and planting others in the bulb sheds to make sure he gets the best flower crops. Ike loves to dance in her spare time and we see her taking a street dance class at her local dance school. Her time is also spent taking care of a new addition - her Shetland pony, Billy.
