Uncovering Amsterdam with street photography

This series are all taken in the first day of arrival, right after an uneasy 9 hours train ride with a very rude Italian cabin crew and a very friendly German film maker cabin mate whom we shared some similar interests.

The first few dutch that I met are all very friendly. One of which invited me for coffee. Without knowing, 20 over cyclists gathered around the place to showcase their customized chopper style bicycle. It's a http://www.chopaderos.com/ event gathering!
