La Page Hollandaise

More canals and bikes
Originally uploaded by Frenchpage.
One of the things I like most about living in Europe is the relatively close proximity to other countries, allowing for weekend visits to places that are not that far distance-wise, but are completely different as far as scenery, language, food, art, architecture and people are concerned. In California you can go a few hundred miles to the north and you are in...California. Last weekend we hopped on the Thalys heading north for a few hundred miles and visited friends in Amsterdam.
Highlights included cycling by the canals despite the damp cold, visiting friends, and seeing the Rembrandts in the Rijksmuseum and the Van Goghs in the Van Gogh museum, two things I have wanted to do since I was a teenager. And since everyone keeps asking, the answer is no, nothing green was inhaled...
