Come to Amsterdam with me!

After two days away I am buzzing with all I have seen!

Amsterdam buildings overlooking canals. Our hotel was like this.

The city is full of bikes, like swarms of locusts they pay no attention to traffic lights, people text and speak on their phones whilst pedalling. Pedestrians must keep their wits about them to avoid being run over!

 The tulips - I wanted to photograph tulips but apparently with the long hard winter it's not been a good year for them. The floating Bloemenmarkt was more a testament to the popular fabric and wood flowers than to the real thing. But walking through it - it's easy walking everywhere, was a joyful experience. People are relaxed and friendly, it's clean. Highly recommend it.
 Next post - the shops!
