But may be next time I can use it 😄 LikeLike Reply So many other Beautiful spots to be seen in Amsterdam. Kind regards, LikeLike Reply So, dare I write this against the flow? There comes a time when a pedestrian scale city center can be overwhelmed by bicycle traffic. That can be experienced in Amsterdam. That means that when walking, a guest must pay more attention to the flow of bicycles than to the great architecture, shops, canals and interesting people. And that, in my opinion is the downside of the Amsterdam city center. But the photo? That is hope, that is promise. That is fun! Thanks for sharing.

I loved my Dutch experience overall except for this thing. One night I was coming back home, and the signal was green for the pedestrian , so I was about the cross the road. Then I saw a car coming without reducing the speed towards the signal and I stopped in fear, let it go and then crossed the road. I would say traffic is quite controlled in Paris and Barcelona in this regard. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you for the, likes, on Elm Drive Images. They ar appreciated!
