Amsterdam, bikes, tulips, cheese & windmills.
S came to visit us in London, and afterwards we went to Amsterdam together. : )
This is the rental place where we booked a bike tour trip around the city.
I love this little car. Definitely on my wish list.
Very bike-friendly society as you can tell.
The houses along the canals are beautiful! They are very tall and skinny compared to other European cities.
We went into a little cafe that looked like a thrift store and served delicious food (and it was a thrift store, you could buy anything in there.)
Every house (they actually look like buildings) has a hook on the very top, which was used to bring furniture and other heavy loads up and into the house. The houses are a bit tilted too, and some believe it was caused by the weight of the loads brought into the house over the years. But more realistically, they were probably designed like that on purpose, to make the task easier.
You can see a bit of the red light district in this pictures. The windows in this area are to showcase...
Inside a normal house, which at the time also had a church in the attic for people to secretly worship. (1700-1800)
The beds were conveniently stored away!
