Haring, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
A dutch delicacy is raw herring (Haring) with pickles and onions. Aaron and I split a portion of this dutch treat at a fish market in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam.

Our friend Melissa took us to the market which is only open on saturdays. We also ate some really old cheeze, and some dutch licorice.

Although the Haring doesn't sound that appetizing, it was really good. I think we miss out on a lot when we aren't willing to try new things. It also allows us an opportunity to connect in a deeper way with the local culture.

Try some Haring if you ever get a chance, yum!
