Amsterdam is a treat for the senses – so many colors, sounds, flavors! Even deathly things – from dried flowers to skeletons napping atop porticos – have an air of whimsy about them. It’s a bit overwhelming at times, especially the traffic combos (trams, bikes, cars, boats and hordes of pedestrians), but very fun, friendly and full of surprises. And to think — I saw all of this and then some in just six hours!
