Hello from Amsterdam!!!   It is wonderful to be traveling again and this is such a beautiful and interesting city with the canals,  the boats,  the architecture  and more!..  Amsterdam is a friendly city , very walkable  ( we walked 11 miles this first day)  and lots to see.

Can u see me? ……….. I’m standing in the “m”.      “m ” for me !      Sorry –  silliness and jet lag  are an unstoppable combination!


Amsterdam is in full  spring bloom  and its so beautiful!


Tulips and Bikes are a common sight in Amsterdam,  :  )


Besides lots of exploring on foot,  we took an enjoyable canal cruise  which also gave us a good overall look at the city.Image

 One of our interesting  “must sees” was this  very tiny  house, 32 feet x 8 feet, which is  attached to the Oude Kerk ( Old Church),  Oude Kerk  is the oldest church in Amsterdam, built in 1300.  Yes, some one actually lives  in this house,

An unexpected sight was this person riding a camel down the road.  Can’t tell you anymore about it – we were just as puzzled!



Then, after such a busy day, Judy’s feet hurt and she had to buy some new shoes. 

More Amsterdam to come!  Stay tuned!

    Wonderful photos! Keep ’em coming! When we were in the Netherlands 50 years ago, I took a photo of some Dutch people who were walking back from church wearing the traditional outfits. They did not want their photos taken (similar to the Amish,) so we drove around the block and ambushed them at the next corner. I got my shot! :o) M.
