Amsterdam – such a beautiful city…
The red and yellow beaked mini-chicken and its mother in the background seen near our boat today.
I knew BP were into many things but I didn’t know eel smoking was one of them. This lovely lady was quietly smoking here eels in Monnickendam yesterday.
Eel smokers come in all shapes and sizes but the one below is quite something. I’m sure I saw something similar in an nuclear power station on the TV recently. The eel smoker shown below was at Monnickendam’s eel smoking festival yesterday. It was fair to say it was smokin’.
A man braves the fumes coming out of the eel smoker…
It is fish and eel smoking day in Monnickendam today.
Amsterdam can get a little busy at times…
Another scary beast seen on the streets of Amsterdam yesterday. Run for cover!
A dangerously ferocious, highly unpredictable and hungry llama seen stalking the streets of Amsterdam yesterday. All visitors beware!
The place in Amsterdam that will satisfy your need for condoms…
Still no word from Heineken re the beer (see previous two posts).
Still waiting (see previous post).
I keep wondering when I’m going to get the complimentary beer from Heineken for all the free advertising I’m giving them?
We’ve spotted a number of these ‘nests’ made by the Oak Processionary Moths in nearby oak trees here in the Netherlands. We’ve never seen them ever before. That’s global warming for you Mr Trump!!!
But, before blaming Mr Trump too much, it looks like we British might be responsible for introducing this particular (and toxic) pest into Europe. More information here.
