    In March I had a half day layover in Amsterdam, so went on a tour of the City. Here are some of the pictures I took…

    1. Amsterdam is known for its canals and for all the bicycles the residents use to get around.

    2. Streetscape

    3. Bridge crossing

    4. Clock Tower

    5. And what would a trip to Amsterdam be without seeing a windmill?

    It’s a beautiful city, and one I would love to see in the spring or summer, from the vantage point of one of the many outdoor cafes.

    Well, you could include Amsterdam into your trip over in May 2008 and revisit it in spring then! I am sure it is beautiful in every season, since even your kind of bleak winter pics make it look good (as it does, it is one beautiful city - not that I'd been there often, but ... erm ... twice?).

    My absolute favourite of this series is Photo 2!

    And hey, Archy, I claim to have been "in Plymouth", too, now, and you know it were only about 5 hours ... but even just 5 hours somewhere can be a very pleasant 5 hours when the company is right :sexywink: !!!

    I recognize the 1st 4 places, my sister in law owns a shop about 100 meters from the bridge in nr3. I wonder where that windmill is? I know of 3 windmills in Amsterdam, but they're in urban area. Is this the one in Buitenveldert?

    Nice shots. Funny to see Amsterdam from a tourist's perspective.

    Brrrrrrr.... I take that you were on your way back from Tanzania - must have been a bit of a shock to the system!

    The second one isn't showing for some reason, but then imageshack hates me anyway - like the bridge one and the windmill.
