Harbour outside the Amsterdam Central Station

Bicycle parking lot--see how the bike lane is about the same size as the road!

Canal cruise boats

Tram system

Department store

View from the canal cruise boat

The harbour--see how flat the land is!

This was a replica of a sunken ship--it was built as part of a job creation scheme in the 1980's, giving 400 local artists & craftspeople jobs, and it's a maritime museum.

Warehouses in the port

Houseboat--note the grass growing on top!

The one in the middle is the Anne Frank house--just for you, Mom :)

3 story parking garage for bikes behind central station--the cyclists seriously own this city!
