I had had a 6 hour plane layover to Amsterdam in 1997 when I first moved to Italy. I took the train shuttle from the airport to the city and walked around, had breakfast and lunch, saw Ann Frank's House and had a great although short visit.
So, I was happy for another visit to Amsterdam. It was MUCH warmer (including SUNSHINE) than it was when we left Germany. The canals are beautiful with lots of boats along them which are actually homes.
But, besides the endless canals and boats lining the canals... you see bicycles everywhere. Large numbers of people ride bicycles. I loved the old styled ones painted in bright colors. I'll have to find some of those photos- I'm not sure if I had downloaded all of them to my computer or not? I did charge the battery for my camera before I drove from Germany for my move to Italy... but, do I know where the battery is? NO. So, I've been taking photos with my Ipad.
