October 2012 - Amsterdam The Netherlands
Various bridges over the Amsterdam canals. Such fun to watch as you wander around this elegant city.
Amsterdam has 165 canals — with a combined length of 100 KM (60 Miles) covered with 1,281 — many of which can open to let ships pass.
I'm sure that ‘The bridge was open’ is a popular excuse for arriving late at school or work even if you route doesn't include a bridge...
Love the Bridge was Open excuse and I agree it is a beautiful city.ReplyDelete
I really like the groovy van in your header. I'd like to visit Amsterdam some day and see these bridges. When I was a kid, I used to be worried that our car would get stuck on a drawbridge and we'd either fall into the water or slide backwards into a car behind us. Good thing there weren't any drawbridges where I lived, so it ended up being a rather idle worry.ReplyDelete
Bridges are such interesting structures. Drawbridges are particularly special. With so many canals in Amsterdam, I can hear that excuse being used several times a day.ReplyDelete
