Lovely Amsterdam: a photo collection
Oh, Amsterdam! I love you and I hate you. I love wandering through your streets and look up to your typical houses which were build in the golden age of our country, and breath in the history. I love strolling along your canals, and I can't help but think of how people used to dump their shit in there in the 19th century. I like all the little boats and bridges everywhere, the trams going up and down the road. I like the small stores full of weird or beautiful stuff, and I could spend days just going around and looking in all those windows. I love your cute neighborhoods with their bars and restaurants and everything else that makes me feel as if I would long be dead by the time I would have been everywhere and done everything. But you are so big, and you make me feel so small. I feel like I'll will drown in the huge crowd of people that swarm through your streets like ants between the tiles on the sidewalk. You are a city of the crowd, who all are looking for profit at the expense of your authentic beauty. So I'll come and visit you once in a while, but you'll never be mine.
I took these pictures when I spent the day in Amsterdam with Lies. Us and the rest of our year club would go out that night together with some guys from an Amsterdam fraternity, but Lies and I decided to arrive early so we would have some time to spend in the city. It was a beautiful day and we surely enjoyed it a lot. I can't help but love Amsterdam more the more I come there. Thank god we live in this tiny country so Amsterdam is not too far for a regular visit :)
