After my relaxing and entertaining afternoon on Shamian Island, I spent a couple of afternoons walking downtown.
I was totally exhausted, after an afternoon, so overwhelming.
I will try to explain why, in words and images.
Let's see, why walking in this city is so overwhelming ...
As I wrote it is a city with 10.5 million inhabitants. Big and busy.
For the Dutch readers, imagine the Albert Cuyp market: a long pedestrian street with stalls on both sides and behind that small and deep shops. Got that image?
Then imagine that all over Amsterdam , so a city of Albert Cuyp. Every street, every corner, everywhere, as far as you can see and walk.
