Kinderdijk and Amsterdam

During the last few days of our trip we visited Kinderdijk and Amsterdam. Kinderdijk is home to several working windmills. They use the windmill power and energy to pump water out and create buildable land that is below sea level and would be flooded. These windmills served the greater community keeping things dry and providing homes for the windmill operators. Our visit to Amsterdam was great. The down town portion of the city is a series of streets and canals, The major form of transportation is by bicycle and they have the right of way on the roads so you have to be careful and look in all directions. I have selected a series of street scenes to give people an idea what its like to live and visit there !
