Trip Report We are staying in the Trans-Jordaan

Jump to last reply

We are not exactly staying in the Jordaan, but just north of it, and are always tin need of transportation. Just here 1 1/2 days and what a magnificent maddening city. The house boats in the canals with more plants, than a hot house and the bicyclists, trams, cars, and buses on a quest to reduce the population by night fall.

Yesterday we went to Anne Frank House' an extraordinary testament to survival and a painfully ironic story of a little girl who wanted fame as a writer. (N.B. it is not for the people who have trouble with stairs.)

Today we went to the Rijksmuseum, a place I have long wanted to visit. No matter the art form, the genre or time period, I always appreciate craft. The Masters were artfully named. It is not only the use of light and composition but the precision of the hands, faces, and the ruffs. Besides the Rembrandts and the Vermeers, the Hals and Stevens are worthy of the centuries of praise. We spent three hours just in the Hall of Honor.

The Dutch are the tallest people on the globe and they were all standing in front of us.
