This is the fifth of a six post series on the architecture and culture of Amsterdam. This summer I was there for a few days in May on my way to Samos Greece and then for a week’s stay on my return form Samos. I learned from a Dutch friend of direct charters from Amsterdam to Samos so we decided to make it our transfer port.
I was pleased to see the lively street life of this city and how the many cafes make great use of the street space. My hometown of New Orleans also has many sidewalk cafes but we could still could learn more from the Dutch. This post provides many views of these cafes and their participants.
