Amsterdam on a Saturday: Pigeons and Protests

A is for Amsterdam. And action. I love going to this bustling city, for its color and its sea of bicycles (in Den Haag we have a steadily flowing tributary of them), for the fact that I can find a grim reaper in a puddle of pigeons, and for the great breadth of its canals and the openness they impart on the city's aesthetic.
We happened upon the city in the midst of an anti factory farming protest, which attracted a buzzing swarm of fascinating folks. Enjoy the madness!
