    Today was the hottest day of the year, but since I didn't feel like staying home, I went for a bit of a cycling tour through my own city.

    1 Cycling that is.

    2 Through the Jordaan area along the canal.

    3 Behind Central Station. Tourists. At least these don't stop in the middle of the road.

    4 Shot from the same exact spot, with a 180 degrees turn.

    5 Same goes for this one, 3 shots without moving a step.

    6 From the roof of the Amsterdam Public Librairy. My bike is down there somewhere between the other 500. Some lady told me I had a lot of nerves locking my bike to the "no bicycles here" sign. When I asked her if she didn't have anything better to do she apologized end left. Some people here are weird.

    8 The interior of the librairy is almost as good as the view. Everything is Apple Macintosh :D

    9 The Nemo sciense museum. I had never been on top so I climbed all the stairs.

    10 Nice view on the IJ-tunnel that goes underneath that building.

    11 Along the Post CS building, the former post office head quarter...

    12 ...that is obviously being demolished.

    13 On to the Passengers Terminal.

    [​IMG]

    14 Big cruiseship as usuall.

    16 Can of coke at the Haarlemmerdijk.

    [​IMG]

    17 That tasted like more. So I thought getting a beer at our friend Gijs' cafe. Unfortunately he was closed.

    18 Back in Oud-West.

    19 And around the corner is home.

    I love threads like this where I can enjoy the sights of someone else's country for a few minutes. Thanks for sharing your bike tour.

    Very cool! Technically speaking I love the photos (Great contrast composition, yada yada). But I really love seeing Amsterdam. You guys sure looks happier there.
