YEAH DATS RIGHT. I’m living it up Dutch style on a houseboat underneath a windmill. Definitely moved on up from my old shipping container home.

Frozen Canals

Posted: January 11th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: photography | Tags: , , , , , , , | 4 Comments »

Was this photograph taken decades ago in a pre-global warming era where people in Amsterdam could glide around the canals all winter long? Actually it was taken two days ago on Keizersgracht by William Bosveld.  Amsterdam’s canals have frozen over for the first time in over a decade! Boats are banned from the frozen areas so people can enjoy the natural ice skating rinks. How nice!

Drowning Bicycles

Posted: September 9th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , | 1 Comment »

There are about 700,000 bicycles in Amsterdam. 80,000 are stolen and 25,000 bicycles end up in the canals of Amsterdam each year! I guess I better not get too attached to my bike.
