Week 49: Alicante/Almere/AMS

Filed under: — Administrator @ 19:32

Another week of shuttling between Spain and the Netherlands. Thursday was a holiday in Spain, so of course I took Friday off and spent four days with my wife and daughter. But before that, there was a street market in Alicante on Sunday to benefit various charities.

We went shopping in Almere Centrum, and so did a few others–although the man in this image does not seem too eager:

On Saturday, we took advantage of a few hours with good weather (meaning absence of rain) and walked around in Amsterdam. This is the view of the Munttoren through the Christmas decorations on Kalverstraat:
