Great photos as usual Raptor.
If ANYONE is planning on going to Amsterdam, I highly, highly, highly recommend trying out the rental boats shown in the picture above. Boaty.nl is the website. The boats are electric, slow as hell, but a totally awesome way to see the city from a different angle.
Skip the tour boats and hit the canals on your own. I swear you can see the jealousy in the eyes of the tourists stuck on the tour boats.
