A Walk in the Jordaan

     Last June we visited Holland and fell in love with Dutch bikes. Now in the depths of winter, so tired of the snow and cold, I daydream about that lovely trip.
     I'd taken an early morning walk in the Jordaan neighborhood, an area near the hotel we were staying at. It had once been where the dutch working class lived and even thought it has since gentrified, it is still full of quiet charm.
     The walk was fun and the best part was that I took my camera. Come, take a walk with me...

Bikes by the canal.

Taking the early morning sun.

It's raining pets!
Tea time on the street.

Water fountain at a tiny park in the Jordaan.

The Westerkirk.
       At the end of the walk I stopped at Winkels Cafe, for a slice of the best Dutch apple pie in Amsterdam. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture, but we plan on going back and I'll be sure to take one then. Until then, I'll be dreaming of Amsterdam.
