Holiday Shopping in Amsterdam

It’s Thursday night in Amsterdam and you know what that means – late night shopping!  And since it’s so close to Christmas, the lights are up and the streets and shops are busy.  Me, I only bought tights.  Ho hum, how boring!

Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure:

This last photo is of the Dam.  The big building across the way, all lit up, is the Bijenkorf (bee hive), the nicest department store in Amsterdam.

    Thanks for the pics..nice to see. I usually look at the Madame Tussauds webcams but they are all down. I meant to go Xmas shopping today but couldn’t face it..and so it must wait (and the shops get busier and busier ..grr)

    Love the pictures.
    I miss that amount of lights here in California.

    I also thank you for the pictures. I haven’t been to Mokum for 12 years now and I think I have just made my first resolution for 2009. I’m curious to see all that’s changed in the meantime and to see familiar things again (Bijenkorf for example, but also the Begijnhof!) Groetjes, Doris
