Another panorama of an Amsterdam canal, the Looiersgracht. I was just wandering around waiting for my car. They were changing the winter tyres to the summer versions.

“Amsterdam thanks its Canadians” is a monument in Amsterdam on the Apollolaan. It stands along the route the Canadians took when the liberated Amsterdam in the spring of 1945 at the end of the second world war. As a boy I often passed it on my way to school. I did not like it because of the material used. I like it better now, but the rusty steel does not relate to a liberated feeling for me.
