Europa

Art of Amsterdam

In addition to it’s coffee and sex shops, scenic canals, tulips, cyclists and cute buildings, Amsterdam offers the visitor a lot of art, old and new.
Sometimes you have to go to a museum or THE museum (The Rijksmuseum) to see it, sometimes it will just present itself on the streets (which almost always have a hip vibe).
Here are some highlights I saw when visiting Amsterdam back in June.
