Boats are running up and down the canals
all day and all night.  Lots of houseboats, too.
We walked for miles over the cobblestones.
Check out the “I amsterdam” sign behind us.
An amazing 40% of all trips in Amsterdam
are done by bike.  This is a 3 story bike-only
parking garage, near the light rail terminal.
The bikes are really functional, with baby
seats and shopping baskets.  Can you imagine
trying to find your bike here on a daily basis?
People bike here in every manner of attire,
including men in business suits and women
in high heels.  No helmets anywhere.
