amsterdam – part 2 is more pictures from my recent trip.
random piece of trivia: the bikes outnumber the inhabitants by 880,000 to 805,000. also, 12,000 bicycles are taken out of the canals every year. no, i’m not kidding!
the picture below is oudekerk (old church) seen from a distance. the location is red light district adjacent.
a few pictures from the wonderful and quiet jordaan neighborhood. i liked walking the orderly grid and taking pictures of everything. i doubt i met any tourist for a few hours.
i really liked this family of coots. how cute are those chicks? is there a special name for coot chicks? I searched and they are called cootlings.
i rarely miss the cos or the & other stories stores if i can. both brands have strong visions and directional collections that rarely disappoint.
this is the back garden of the huis marseille – the museum for phototography.
this is in plantage, next to the artis zoo. the flamingo pond is open for everyone to see. a wonderful corner!
there are many flea markets in amsterdam. browse to find treasures!
i love these special ceramic tulip vases. i am no expert but they seem very dutch!
this is the atrium of conservatorium, probably the most interesting hotel in town.
behind the rijksmuseum, there are tulips and an alexander calder installation.
stay tuned for the last amsterdam post!
