A museum, a brewery, little cars, and the Amstel River

This is the Riks Museum. I didn't have the time to go through and see the collections here and since the next day I would be in Paris, I decided to take a pass since I didn't want to get museumed out.

This is the Heineken Brewery. I personally don't like the taste of Heineken, I think it tastes awful and skunky because of the deterioration of the beer due to light coming in through the green glass of the bottles. I also found that with the brewery close by that the local supply would not have that skunky taste.

Wrong. Still skunky.

I stuck with Carlsberg (a Danish import also in green glass, but not skunky) in the bars and taverns of Amsterdam.

I just loved taking photos of these little cars. If you were to get into an accident, a serious accident, they could pull your remains out with a shop vac or just use the car as a coffin. Pretty convienent.

These remaining photos are of the Amstel river. Yes the same name as that other miserable beer that comes from Heineken.

I've been extremely delinquent in putting up photos and posting anything. Let's just say that the past couple of months have been extremely hectic for me. I suspect that I'll have a little more time to post and get a few more of my travel photos and observations up by the end of July. Till then...
