Day One

Only just arrived in Amsterdam. Nothing to report so far except what a great city! It only took a ten minute tram journey through the south of the city to remind me of the pleasures of good urban design and culturally distinctive architecture.   Not sure what that has to do with the price of eggs but I guess you could say it's about having time to really look and to be in the moment. Very exciting to have time to "stand and stare".  Watch this space....

Urban intervention "iamsterdam" is not just a clever piece marketing but also a means of connecting strangers in a city. These giant letters spelling Amsterdam provide playful human interaction and a new way of experiencing the city itself. Picture by John Dawson
