Sunny day in Amsterdam

There are more than 3 years since my last visit in Amsterdam. The last time was for a new year party and all the days that I stayed (10!) there was no sun at all. But, yesterday was the first time that I’m in Amsterdam and it’s such a sunny atmosphere, no clouds at all and a warming sun. A great day to see the beautiful city, to enjoy the splendor of an old town preserved so well. Did you knew that A’dam is the city with the most well preserved old buildings in the world ? There are more than 6,000 monumental houses in this small city. And nothing compares to admire those buildings sitting on a bench in front of the (non-smelling) Canals in a bright sunny day. So, for my second day (yesterday) I’ve chose to hung around the old part (and not so touristic) of the city, in the area south bounded by Frederiks Plein. I don’t like the major touristic places because there is too much noise and dialects are distracting me from the beauty of the vicinities. Today I have some other plans: to visit the museum of purses and bags (sounds interesting, isn’t it ?), and to have some night walk around the famous Redlight District.  The next day maybe I’ll travel to Hague and Rotterdam, why not ? Enjoy the pictures and if you want to see full size you only have to click on them. Sorry about the distance used in these photos, but I had to manage taking the pictures by my own.
