Amsterdam, The Netherlands


While perusing Bing for colorful images, this view reminds me of many European travels of long ago.  To say the least, Amsterdam was an eye opener for its traditional canals, art, architecture and tulip fields.  I tasted smoked eel for the first time which I quickly swallowed with a strong swig of local spirits.  My best souvenirs fill my home with art, lacey curtains, Deft china and antique candelabras.

Those were days of solitary freedom; however, these days are the best!
