Grace was at Amsterdam for an international conference in early July. We transited through the city several times before and I have made an extensive visit about 20 years ago. This was the first time Grace really visited and stayed in Amsterdam. This is the famous Dam Square.
The devil was not asking for Grace's soul, he was asking for money, since Grace took a picture of him.
I am glad that Grace did not go into the building!! She only took a picture of it.
A very interesting wall decoration!
What a contrast between old and new wall decoration! Can you see the Picasso's influence in these paintings. Of course, Amsterdam has a world famous Picasso museum.
Beautiful houses, I think these have neck- or bell- gables. In the old days, the merchants used the lifts on top of the gables to haul merchandise to the storage at the loft.
What a beautiful ornate archway!
How can a trip to Amsterdam without a boat tour of the city's famous canal. How I would also like to have a house boat and cruise on the water with a little boat like this.
Looking at the beautiful houses along the canal, one cannot not admire the once domination of world ocean by the Dutch merchants.
The sun was down and it was time for Grace to go back to the hotel and pack up for home.
