  • Reminiscing in Amsterdam

    I last visited Amsterdam on a couple of occasions in the early 1960's. But that was on a Triumph Tigress Scooter over 55 years ago. The Rijksmuseum hasn't changed a lot since those days and the new Stedelijk Museum is well worth a visit to those interested in modern art. However, the major difference is in the number of people who thronged what I remember as empty streets. With cyclists everywhere, I needed eyes in the back of my head to stay safe.
