Flight home (Stopping in Holland)

I will have to add the captions a few at a time over the next few weeks
WOW!!! This is taking way longer than I thought it would.
So at least here are the pictures for now!

More of the boat tour around Amsterdam canals.

This is the most famous bridge in Amsterdam but I don't remember why.

This is a statue of Michel the arch angel. Don't remember why he told us about it. These are the old old buildings.

The very very rich people in the 1700's lived here. Still occupied by very very rich today. Business people.

Every house has one of these hooks. Then when they want to put anything up the second or 3rd floors they pull it up and into a window.
They made the steps very narrow and steep so no furniture can be moved that way. They still do that in every building in
Amsterdam today.

This is the Amsterdam bike parking lot right by central square. 1000's of bikes come here every day. I could not find one new bike.

More really clean cut Dutch youth.

Marijuana plant in the window. Probably can guess what they sell inside. It is not illegal.

This has to be the ultimate in MAKEOVER Reality shows. Make over your toilet. Give me a break... The Dutch are hard up for
reality show excitement.

My friend Donavan that I met at the airport in Amsterdam on my way home.
