Spent a quiet morning exploring a nearby park, taxied to the pick-up point at a downtown hotel and were bussed from there to our brand-new cruise ship. Built for the river and canals, the ship (the Avalon Panorama) is shiny new, narrow and 900 feet long. After a welcome-aboard drink with the captain, a lovely supper was served in the dining room and we turned in for the night.
Crosswalk in Amsterdam, note separate lanes and lights for bikes, cars and trams.
