Construction Challenges in Amsterdam

Not far from our place is a project that seems to have a few problems. They certainly need a pump, but notice all the different steel beams. The neighboring homes are all severely cracked now too.

2nd Dogfood Run

February 14, 2020 1 comment

This is my 2nd attempt to transport two 10kg bags of dogfood since we sold our car. While the bike is less wobbly without weight on the front, I did notice the bags slipping off to one side a little.

So, I’m still working on the right setup and I’ll get another chance in 3 or 4 weeks once the dogs eat these bags.

When a friend turns 50

She throws herself a party, of course! This is how our friend, Pita, celebrated her 50th; she rented out part of this building in the heart of Amsterdam’s most popular, Vondelpark. It was filled with her friends, representing about 13 different nationalities.

Transport in Amsterdam

I used to strap a kayak to the roof of my car, and now I use those same straps to attach 10kg bags of dogfood to my bicycle.

The bike does feel a little wobbly with that much weight over the front tire, but otherwise rides nice.

We also had a nice rainbow today.

Another day in Amsterdam

Of course, since it is a UNESCO World Heritage site, even a cloudy day is beautiful.

Amsterdam Light Festival

Tonight we rented a very nice covered and heated boat from 1910, now electric, and saw the Light Festival on the canals of Amsterdam. More info about that is at:

A few photos from my phone, which never look great at night:
