In orde? (From Amsterdam)

That's 'alright?' for those not fluent in Dutch.

We spent a very relaxing weekend playing tourist in this beautiful city- whiling away the hours strolling by the canal, eating and drinking al fresco, and people watching. Sure, the place has a seedy side, but Amsterdam on a sunny day is a pretty sweet place to be.

Resplendent in art history (the Van Gogh museum was excellent), there are sculptures and various other artwork in every public space, people making merry on the canal in big and small watercraft...

 And bicycles everywhere you turn. Regular bicycles...
(Note the leaning houses are not an optical illusion- they perch perilously on the canal banks, actually angling in towards the water)

 Ridiculous bicycles (this one with it's own bar in the middle of all the pedals- why choose between drinking and site seeing?)... and my favourite, a saccharine pink baby with those funny little beads on the spokes that move around when you pedal. I want it!! (If only I could actually ride a bike)

Notwithstanding the glorious weather, I managed to look grumpy here by the tree.

A marginal improvement. And a closer shot of the new vintage jacket- it has these amazing studded crosses in the sleeves, and the label declares this is 'ranch wear'. Definitely me-wear. Amsterdam has has fabulous vintage shops- my favourite was Laura Dols.
