It rained in Amsterdam today, but I have a wonderful time. For a long while, I have admired the wonderful photographs of Björn Upcott (see http://www.pbase.com/viztyger/architecture&page=all). Also, he does wonderful reports on compact cameras. Björn and Lindsey kindly showed us around De Hortus ( a beautiful botanical garderns in Amsterdam). Next, we shopped till we dropped and ate at a wonderful Arabic resturant.
