Rembrandt Museum and more
WE had a great day today-what with number one: going to the Reich museum and seeing such fabulous paintings that we had only seen before in art books-to see them in the flesh was awesome and inspiring-so many years past these works of art had been created-but yet they were before us-in fingertip range-one could almost reach through the years and touch the actual people that put paint to canvas...incredible and so wonderful....then back to basics-we found good food! Away from the crowd restaurants-we got good pasta at good rates....later on we just watched the locals riding their bicycles in a way that is sinuous and lovely to watch-generations have practiced this way of transportation-we could learn from this would our hills be smaller.....hah!
