I’m on the train from Paris to Amsterdam. Is there anything better in this world than a large comfortable seat on a train in first class? I’m new enough to train travel to delight in it completely. My head is against a pillow, turned toward the window. I’m watching the world go by: Brussels, Antwerp, and Rotterdam. Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde is playing on my iPod: Visions of Johanna, I Want You and Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands. Life is good, unless, of course, if you despise Bob Dylan then it would be a personal hell.

I am taken with the differing modes of Amsterdam travel- I tried to capture a few of them. My camera is having trouble focusing, much like its owner, but I’m including them anyway because Karyn and Erin were kind enough to ask.

...and of course

Biking in Amsterdam has got to be one of the best experiences Amsterdam has to offer. Better than pot and those beckoning women.

I love city tramways. Just tried out the #3 in Paris.

Awesome! Those Dutch are so good at multitasking while riding their bikes, eg, holding an umbrella and smoking - and with such a sense of easiness.
