This March 20, 2013 photo shows a mother urging her children away from toys in a stand at Albert Cuyp market, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Amsterdam's wealth began in its port with the merchants who bought and sold everything from tulip bulbs to spices from the East Indies. A little of that mercantile past can still be seen at the city's many markets. The most famous is the Albert Cuyp food market in the Pijp neighborhood, which sells, as the city website puts it, everything from cheese to bicycle chains, six days a week. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
