Living back in De Pijp again, a funky little warren of a neighbourhood consisting of corner pubs, the biggest street market in the city, a little (ok, more than a little) litter, and chock full of high-end and low-end dwellings, restaurants, and people.
The past 3 days, the wind has been blowing like mad. Biking here is an experience almost anytime, but being blown into oncoming traffic or lightposts adds another element of adventure.
Some photos from this morning's walk around the 'hood...
Some fresh flowers for Andre Hazes, De Pijp's favourite son. He was discovered at age 8 at the Albert Cuyp street market here, and went on to become one of Hollands's most popular singers. He sung mostly levenslied (songs about life) - essentially Dutch folk music.
