Amsterdam Ramblings

Today Amsterdam looks like it did in the 1600s, on old Dutch paintings – clouds blown past high gabled houses, churches, and bridges reflected in quiet canals. How many stories the city can tell, like aged seamen who is full of tales, that are not always proper in a good society… As many travelers before we start the walk at the Central Station that resembles art museum. It sits at what was the harbor entrance, where gally sailors debarked from the ships and were met by ladies with red lanterns.
