Walking Around Amsterdam

Last Friday, we had a visit from Chris Want (old time Canadian Blender compatriote) and his girlfriend, so that gave me the opportunity to snap some pictures in other part of the city. It was, of course, very nice meeting them and they allowed me to tag along on Saturday for a visit to the Van Gogh museum.

Some people enjoying a cruise on the canal.

NOO! They are everywhere!

After the restaurant, we passed through Central Plaza (or whatever it's called). A Building, the Plaza itself, another building.
I had more pictures, but sadly too blurry.

On Saturday, we payed a visit to the Van Gogh museum. Sadly, no pictures allowed at all inside, so we'll have to make due with those two shots from the park behind the museum itself. This one is another museum of something or another and that one is a concert hall (currently presenting Chopin recitals).

That's it for now. I'll be back next Monday in the cold northern Canada (except not that cold since it's summer), so I don't really expect to be posting more stuff here.

Next time I'm halfway across the globe I guess.

More Pictures

Shipping Peach DVDs on Tuesday

Inside the Blender Institute: the artists room, the walls are full of these, the kitchen/dinning room, the developers' corner.

Taken from the balcony in the back of the apartment: Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3.

That's it for now.

Snapshots from Amsterdam


I'm in Amsterdam for three weeks, working at the Blender Institute, so I'll use the opportunity to revive this blog a bit.

Today was a bright, warm and sunny day, so I took some shots on the walk from the apartment to the institute.

Sidewalk view
Across a canal
Street view
Canal shots again, one more, another
Boat on the canal (a tourist tour I think)
Artis Zoo (just across the canal from Entrepotdok)
Interesting bridge
Probably art or something
An old docking crane

Pictures from the inside of the apartment: my room, dining room and living room, stairs leading to the entrance (we don't see much, but there's a weird curve at the bottom, the stairs are angling toward the wall and not toward the door).

I'll post some more as soon as I have them.
