There is a special garden housing the traditional variety. Traditional means those varieties which cause the Tulip disaster in Netherlands. Too bad that the flowers have yet to come.

We were back to Amsterdam city center in the evening. A good time to walk around the city. Nice architecture there.

The first picture is the royal palace, then the new church and the largest shopping center Magna Plaza.

The other side of the city is the famous Red Light District. It is interesting to see that the Old Church is close to Red Light District. I feel a harmony atmosphere when canals meet with city center.

The last picture shows the simplest male toilet I have ever seen.....

Have to mention the dinner we had that night. We just walked in a nice decorated restaurant and found it very good. I am willing to give them Michelin star rating if I can. Foods are yummy, the ingredients of each dish matched wonderfully and gave us surprise, together with a reasonable wine list.

Our second day in Amsterdam was Museum Day again. We went to Museum Plaza and visited Van Gogh Museum and Rijskmuseum.

There was a long queue when we arrived and it was a worthwhile visit. We spent about 3 hours there to go through the whole life of Van Gogh. The last picture is one of his famous painting Sunflower, this is one of the 4 copy that he made.

Rijksmuseum is the largest museum in Netherlands. It has a large collection of Rembrandt's paintings, the number is even more than Rembrandt House Museum. There is a separate chamber for Rembrandt in this museum and the main painting is his "Night Watch".

In addition to the paintings, it collects a lot of articles showing the history of Netherlands, especially their marine power. And a small library too.
