The trees will turn color in Fall, and be bare in winter, but the grass will be green all year.


(1) Amsterdam. Many trees are leaning as a result of storms and much wind.
Most middle class people live in apartments, as you see on the right .




(2) Many bridges, because Amsterdam was built on pillars standing in water

(4) Real city living doors! For Thursday Doors

Most middle class people live in apartments  or split level homes – Holland is severly over populated. Most residential homes are in the newer suburban areas for a hefty price, or in the country.
Am counting at least five traffic signs! Now all the power lines are underground, but not in these older neighborhoods in Amsterdam from previous centuries. There were so many in this view, that I removed most of them.





The Doors of a slice of the scene below






On top you can see the year this was built: anno  1730.
A part of my brother’s life when he was studying in Groningen (North Holl.) The blue sign means: The Three Sisters.

    Lovely shots. Thanks for the quick peek into a very different lifestyle. In most of North America we are spoiled because we still have so much space. Cheers 🙂

  3. Barb says:

    I liked seeing that walkway with the towering trees. It looks very busy in the city. I’m accusomed to wide open spaces but I love walking in the city, too.

    I really want to visit Holland sometime!! Thanks for the tour, and I like the photos!

  10. Jesh, I haven’t been to Holland since the mid-seventies, so thanks for taking me back for a few minutes. Now if we could just have some broodjes and bier!


  11. jesh stg says:

    Oh wow, even from ten years ago it has changed quite a bit.
    My weakness is pommes frites (frennch fries) and chocolate:)
    Cities have greatly enlarged, Changing to the Euro, prices have become steep. Only on the country side are still some wide open spaces and not much changed..

  12. I had my first Vietnamese food there and fell in love with bami goreng. Haven’t found it many places in the US in all these years, although I did find some in Seattle many years ago. Yes, the pommes frites are delightful!

  13. Love your autumn colours and those goodies look yummy

  14. Eileen Wise says:

    Beautiful and interesting pics. I’ve noticed that housing in Holland is very expensive compared to where I live in the US.

  16. Marleen, NL says:

    You seem to have captured the essence of the city in just a few photos.

  25. So charming, thanks for sharing in the Colors of Autumn

  26. Hi Jesh, Your photos of Holland and the stories behind each photo was lovely. No wonder your population is so many people. Holland is a beautiful place to live.

  35. Mitzi says:

    Very lovely…I have some wonderful memories of Holland & Europe…thanks for bringing them to the surface!

  36. Every walk ought to end with something pleasurable to eat. Yumm. I haven’t seen much of autumn in our area, but then I haven’t wandered around much this season. Now, I’m waiting patiently for it to start raining. Hope so. I haven’t watered the garden in over a week.

  37. Peabea says:

    Love seeing your sharing here. Since I don’t travel, this is great to know about your Holland. Enjoyed.

    Those leaning trees are quite interesting, actually.

  41. jesh stg says:

    When you say it like that, I wonder if you lived there? And if so, where, may I ask?
    I am Dutch, but have lived for 30+ years in California.
