Around the World: Holland

A lot of things I could tell, but I'm a little tired and need to sleep ;-) enough to say that first night in Amsterdam, wandering without purpose and not following any guide, guess in what neightborhood I ended in? let me say there were a lot of rainbow flag ;-)

They are great shots

I'm surprised that they still have windmills in Holland...I assumed that they were a thing of the past with only a few left for the benefit of tourists.

There was a mix, both for tourist than real windmills ;-) the tulips above though were from a park that was mostly for tourists.

What superb pictures - those tulips are gorgeous. It's a lovely city, we've been there a couple of times, and have friends in Delft. Enjoy your trip!:)

I spent a few weeks in Amsterdam and only left to see the Berlin Wall go tumbling down. What a time that was, the winter of 1989. I don't know which I miss the most, the 'prostitutes' of Amsterdam or the Berlin Wall disappearing for good. In a way, there is a longing for that time.

Beautiful pictures, Elisa. I especially like the first one... image of distant windmill taken through blade of nearby... further proof you have a good eye for artistry.

Thank you Jardonn, you understood perfectly that picture :-)

Welcome back! I love your eye for composition. (I also envy those tulips. We have one blooming so far...
