  • Had a nice walk along the Sumatrakade from Java Eiland, along IJ Eiland, to KNSM Eiland. Walked primarily along the quays on the IJ side, which can be a little bit boring at times, architecturally speaking, but then, we're here for the view across the IJ, right? With Amsterdam Noord just across the water, with Damen shipyards at the water front on the other side, the ferry shuttling back and forth, the little island in the middle of it all, there is always something to see. Recommended for a nice early evening walk.
  • THE IJ IS THE BEST RIVER OF ALLLLLL RIVERS. NOBADY BULT RIVERS BETTER THAN WHE DO
