Every single Chineses business is visited on the day and is blessed for the coming year.

The Dragon works its magic

 

 

 

April 30th every year is "queens day"  official birthday of the Queen of Netherlands.

It's a national holiday, and the whole of Amsterdam and the entire country turns orange.

Over one million people turn out  in Amsterdam to have a party.

 

 

 

" take my photo".  It's Queens day, Hip, Hip Hooray.  A lovely sunny day in Amsterdam.

 

 

 

And we all stand together.  This is a canal full of boats. Queens Day madness comes but once a year.

                   Boats here come in all shapes and sizes

 

 

 

 

This boat shaped like a piece of cake  is advertising  the local bread shop  "Brood."

 

 

 

This amazing looking boat looks home made. It's fitted with a very fast engine and sort of glides over the water.

 

 

 

Moving house Amsterdam style,  many people use the Bakfiets bike to move house.  

You see people all the time with huge amounts of stuff piled on.

 

 

 

Amsterdam Houseboats are a real popular way to live

                        November 2010,  here comes the snow.

 

 

 

 

A white, snow covered Amsterdam, and it's not even winter yet.

 

 

 

 

The Swans on the Gedersekade were trapped by ice but managed to break on through to the other side.

  

Snow is falling all around us. A few feathered friends look on as the snow falls
