Fractions from Amsterdam - 2

Wordless Wednesday is here (also from Amsterdam)
Amsterdam - a Weekend in late, late September - #2
Yesterdays post was shorter than first planned. My regular readers know why: Too slow internet upload connection. So, here are more from a memorable weekend in A'dam. (4 hrs uploading)


Picture 1 - Marching for Tibet - Starting the March between van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum on Sunday - some thousand people with pink umbrellas walking for a Free Tibet.

Picture 2 - The Art Market this Sunday was entertained by a Harp player - singing old English sacral songs.

Picture 3 - Atlas in Amsterdam - some minutes away from Amsterdam Centraal - The Railway Station.

Picture 4 - Hi, where is my Camera? Is this sensorship?

Picture 5 - Chicken as served at A FUSION - heavenly

Picture 6 - What? A Cat behind me in this restaurant? Yeah - and he just was asleep all the time - Me, unshaved with Soya coloured teeths - haha - it was a great taste. And look - a flower out of my head.

Picture 7 - Channel sightseeing cruiseboats in Amsterdam

Picture 8 - Outside Centrum - we bought a tram coupon and went around Amsterdam - quick, easy and cheap - bought the coupon in a KIOSK

Picture 9 - Rijksmuseum - Amsterdam - Yes we did see it (Rembrandt - Nightwatch) - Saturday we gave up (van Gogh instead) - Museum weather - but Sunday: Sunshine and allmost Summer and direct entry - people everywhere outside.

Picture 10 - Cafe activites - we changed e-mail adresses - after some photos and something to drink

Picture 11 - Anne Claire and Anna - ready for cafe life in old Amsterdam

Picture 12 - Old cafe - very charming - but a steep stairway -watch your step

Picture 13 - Traditional vessel - suitable for channels and sea

Picture 14 - Oranjien - Can't be to Holland without bringing this colour - Orange. Picture taken Sunday 9-30-2007 in Amsterdam

That's it folks - the rest is kept within the Family. Hahaha.

Go crusing you too. Here. Or, do you miss the Cats. Don't worry.

Wonderful! I love the pictures that you have sent.
This puts a lot of pressure on me for my trip next month to the Panama Canal! How can I top this? (LOL)
I hope that computer time isn't too expensive!

Ah, yes, it's wonderful to re-live our own days in Amsterdam now. When seeing photos one remember much more. And Amsterdam is a very lovely - and lively - city.

So, did you see the Red Light District? Of course you did. I've heard that they're thinking of closing it down? Can it be possible? After soooo many years?

I'll link to this post in my next post, which will posted within a hour, at midnight :-)

Four hours to upload pictures! I would have said some very vulgar words and left the computer to it.

Great pictures, though, Tor. Nice to see what Amsterdam looks like. I shall be going there in the next couple of years.

Amsterdam is a nice city isn't it ? As my son lives there for 5 years already I know the city by heart of course and now I don't go there so often because he lives with his girlfriend in a for me too small appartment. Before he had a very big one with view on the canal payed of course by the company. Renting is very very expensive in Amsterdam !
BTW last year I have been there in August and wrote about the city

It's funny to see how people see a city in different ways, lol !
And you uploaded all your pictures with Blogger ? I would have ended up in a mad house !

To think you saw all of that, Tor, without me in sight anywhere! Boo Hoo! I can hardly wait for you to come back when I'm there! But you did certainly capture the feel of that great city!
