Father and Son Boat Watching

It’s been so long since I took this image, I’m pretty sure it’s a man and his son just hanging out, watching boats pass through one of Amsterdam’s many canals.

Alisha and I were in Holland during the winter months, celebrating  a friend’s birthday.  I’d love to get back during the warm, summer months and enjoy the cities and countryside and everything they have to offer.

Bikes and Canals of Amsterdam

For my friend’s 40th birthday a bunch of us flew to Amsterdam and stayed on a houseboat for a week.  In an attempt to “check out the neighborhood,” Alisha and I went to London, Belgium and then made our way to the Netherlands.

I like how different each country of Europe is, considering they all have an enormous similaritiy in being part of the Eurozone. London loves is tube and bus system; Amsterdam loves it’s canal and bicycles.

Aw, nuts!

Aw, Nuts!

As mentioned several times in this space, I’m a sucker for markets in other countries.

This picture is from an outdoor market in Amsterdam.  About halfway through the market some friends and I found a little diner-type place and I ordered the house special — a hamburger.  It was probably the largest, sloppiest burger I’ve ever had the pleasure to devour, but it was so good.
