FloraHolland Tour

It was long and interesting day, our first activity day since arriving yesterday afternoon. We started early by arriving at FloraHolland at 7:00 am for a guided tour of the auction.  This auction is 102 years old! a Dutch tradition where the bidding starts high on 'the clock' and falls as time runs out.    
Bidders risk paying too much if they buy early and risk missing out on that flower purchase if they wait too long.
