Life in Amsterdam

I tend to forget how remarkable it can be for tourists, how we Amsterdammers do most of our traveling through the city by bicycle. Just the other day, I talked about this with a friend who lives in Texas. There, even if you wanted to, it's just something you don't do. Not just because of the large distances, but also because of crime. Huh, I have to say I'm a happy cycling Amsterdammer, even more now.

Although I don't even need to get onto my bike when I have to get groceries. Just around the corner there are many shops with lovely stuff. Like this pomegranate. Makes my mouth water just thinking of it.
