Amsterdam is a cool city - filled with cosmopolitan people with an intergal mishmash haven of all opposites. I walked around Amsterdam starstrucked ~ great to hear all sorts of languages around you and seeing all sorts of people milling by.
I like this picture of the clock on the wall. This was taken in a restaurant in the Centraal Station (the Main station) where we had coffee.

4. How expensive parking is here (now *that* is a whole new tale on its own .. but I will not start it here)
5. Of course I was curious about the Red Light Area and made it a point to stay there. What can I say ?

Oh, there is quite a varied choice of restaurants there as well.
6. Enjoy the view of canals, roads and trams in one view.
7. Nearly getting killed by bicycles !! I was totally *not* prepared for that
8. There is more .. sooonnn..
