Well, my girlfriend and I have been floating around Amsterdam all week. The weather is pleasantly cool, unlike the heatwave much of the U.S. has been suffering through.
I’m putting together some awesome panorama shots which I’ll display once I return from the trip. In the meantime, here’s a couple of random pics I took while out and about.
The first is from Museumplein, a large park in the south of Amsterdam which holds three of the biggest art museums in the city, the Rijksmuseum, the van Gogh museum, and the Stedelijk (modern art, pronounced “stay-to-lick”) museum. The view here is from the Rijksmuseum, looking back towards the concert hall at the other end of the plein.
The second picture is a distant shot of one of the neo-Gothic churches in the city, the Krijtberg.
More pics to come! I’ve also taken video of some interesting behavior at the Amsterdam zoo which will make for a nice post…
