APRIL 12, 201

I love to look up and see the charming  architecture  and spires of Amsterdam against the blue sky.  I so enjoyed the city, the energetic people and the pancakes.  Did I tell you they have pancake restaurants on almost every corner?   The best  tasting and most unusual

pancakes I have ever seen.   I will have to come back again some time. Until then, here are some parting shots of this fun city.

Westerkerk  steeple – the church where Rembrandt is buried.

Dried flowers hanging from the ceiling at the flower market.

Tulips  to bring home  that will last forever and never need watering.  Amsterdam thinks of everything.

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!
