Tuesday 30th July: Amsterdam
My first visit to Amsterdam, we started with a boat tour (very badly design so cannot see much and too big to go to the cute canals), then spent most of the day wandering around town...visited a few breweries, floating flower market, most beautiful art deco cinema, red light district (which surprisingly also the prettiest part of town)




Great boats building old and new

the Tuschinski Theatre, a gorgeous expressionist/art deco Cinema palace, still functioning as a cinema.  They only did tours in the mornings but we had a little explore of the beautiful foyer area.

That cinema is amazing; I bet the tour would have been good.
The canal side scenery reminds me of Bruges, and the horses and carriages for the tourists.
