The last few days we have just been living life in Amsterdam. Taking a few bike rides, walking around the neighborhoods--just normal stuff.

We were invited to a community party last night. The party was celebrating the start of the neighborhood 400 years ago. We stayed for a little while but since everything was spoken in Dutch, it was "all Greek " to us. So we went on home.

We did some shopping at one of the blocks long street markets. And had tea at a neighborhood cafe.

It is good to take time off from the hustle and bustle of traveling.

There are some interesting forms of modern architecture in this city. So these are a few photos of ones we saw.

Flower Auction
If you have time, go to the flower auction held in a community outside of Amsterdam. Most anyone can tell you where it is and how to get there. We found it very interesting. You both would enjoy it.
