It warmed up a little late this afternoon in Amsterdam; that’s what a light rain can do.
The city is jammed with tourists of all types. Because I’m alone I especially notice all the couples, but the locals are out and about, too. Like at home, people are running errands; the shops are busy. Likewise the coffee shops where it’s legal to smoke pot. Walking around I get a whiff and it takes me back to my college days.
The innermost streets are blocked to cars; it’s one more way the Dutch promote bicycling. And the bikes swarm across the city. Late in the day I stumbled upon a bike boulevard of sorts, so I tucked myself between parked cars to catch some shots.
I’m doing some shopping myself; workin’ my Xmas list.
