We stayed just outside of the Jordaan district and walked in everyday.


 This gave me plenty of opportunity to photograph (endlessly) cute rows of house with all the different gable shapes.

We did a lot of the cultural sights like the museums, flower market and Anne Franks house and in between getting to all these places on foot we enjoyed the shopping too.
