Art On The Street - Amsterdam

 This is an interesting mix of characters!

After a summer busy with writing an MBA thesis, and the other stress that follows finishing grad school, I find myself in Amsterdam.  So, you should prepare for some interesting stories and lots of pictures.

The ironic part is that even though I’m in one of the more photogenic cities in the world, I’m attracted to pictures of graffiti type art on walls.  Yeah, the canals are super beautiful, but my pictures just look like everyone else’s (and the cover of every Amsterdam guidebook ever written).

So, let me get some grungy stuff out of the way, and I’ll share more words soon.

I'm not an art historian, but I'm starting to see some familiar faces.

 Van Gogh took a selfie and someone painted it on a wall.

Dutch Word of the Day:

Dag

This word literally means day, but seems to be used as a pretty general “hello.”  Basically, you say “dock,” but pretend you choke on something as you get to the C.  It’s not so graceful, but at least it’s easy…

Be careful about being brainwashed!

Don't forget: Some people HATE being viewed as a tourist. Try not to insult them.
