More Churches of Holland

Here is a collection of churches in Amsterdam.

The End of the Church

I could not help but notice that the stain on the glass here was distinctly different than the glass stains in the nearby red light district.

Canal Cruise

We took a cruise around the canals one of the evenings there. This one was taken around sunset.

Farewell Holland

This was taken my final evening in Holland. I found a remote pastoral area with several olde world windmills. I was the only one around… I got fairly cold waiting for sunset, but I think it was worth it.

A Day in Haarlem

After spending most of the day in Haarlem, I’m now convinced that it is a much better place than Amsterdam in almost every way, unless you count massive quantities of stoned British soccer hooligans as an important part of your Rick Steves’ featureset.

I took the train from Amsterdam to Haarlem after spending a while trying to figure out the Dutch train schedule, which required the discovery of a WW2 enigma machine. It was only about 15 km away, so it was a short ride. The town of Haarlem itself was extremely nice, completely unlike the Harlem in New York.

I spent most of the day walking around with my camera and my iPod. I must have walked about 15 km around the city getting completely lost in little alleyways. I took a ton of pictures and have only had a short amount of time to process a few of them for now. These things take a while, since my workflow on these things is Sisyphusian at best.

The first picture below is of Grote Kerk. At the end of the church is a famous pipe organ that Mozart once played on as a child. The pipe organ is 100 feet high with over 5,000 pipes. I recommend the Large version on black.

Rembrandt Restaurant

This is a very nice little restaurant here in Amsterdam where you can dine underneath actual Rembrandt sketches. Most of the restaurant is underground, and there are little tiny rooms and nooks and crannies throughout.
