Amsterdam. City of Dreams. 2009 Trip.

I've got my tickets! We leave fly out of Charlotte on October 15th and will be back on November 5th. Three weeks in Amsterdam! I wasn't terribly excited until I bought the tickets. Now I can't wait! Going to Amsterdam always feels a bit like going home. But then when I'm there and deal with public transportation for three weeks, I'm ready to DRIVE MY CAR. A car without stick shift and traffic lanes that don't go anywhere. All the art and all the beauty make it worth it. Oh, and it's nice to see Ton's family. I guess I should throw that in, too. :-P

In all my excitement, I realized I had forgotten all about my pictures from last year's trip! I have started sorting them, finally. But it will take AGES to get them sorted and converted. But in the meantime, I leave you with the first batch.

Afternoon at the Blauwbrug (Blue Bridge)
