Just a view

Standing on the bridge to the "Uilenburgerstraat" looking at the back of the new Amsterdam school of Arts this canal is only one of the very few that is once again excavated in 1978 to connect the "Uilenburger canal" with the "Oude Schans canal". Since 1857 there are more than 70 canals filled and although there are plans to open some more the car lobby has until now stopped every attempt.

  1. With the number of bicycles I have seen in your photos over the years, I am surprised that there is a car lobby.

  2. You have unique conflicts of interest in Amsterdam, it must be difficult to resolve these issues.
