my old view of Amsterdam

An old pic from a visit to Amsterdam in the '70s. I was amazed to see a couple walking in Centre-town and taking the time to stop by a shop window to stare at offers... So different from the world I knew in North America! I know MY parents never went into Centre-town to look at prices for a trip...
At the time, this was done in Europe (as I found out) but we never did this in North America, where we found all we wanted in malls...

The world has changed so much and I'm happy it has. But I love to see that old pic ... Travel is immemorial.
