That top picture is very pastoral - I like it.

And the colours in number three are great too.

You know, I've lived in the Netherlands for 21 years, never really felt the need to get to know Amsterdam.
Been there loads of times of course, but just to go in, get whatever it is you need to get done done and get back out.
It certainly is "the centre of the known universe" in Holland.
I should take time to explore a little more.
EasyJet to Barcelona or Dublin is great but stuff on your own doorstep is often just as interesting.

There was never a "windows tax" in Holland JD, hence the abundance of glass in all the old buildings, something that in the UK is the exact opposite, and has its charms too.
Maggie, you will let us know in advance won't you? Poffertjes on the Dam is a date!

Tnx Euphro, I clearly haven't find my niche yet.

Thank you Mandy, I added a Wikki-Link for you (still searching for tea-tax)

UkMari, yes, it kind of reminded me of that too.

I love the buildings Joker but must say that the statue (dancers?) is just gorgeous.
