A view of one of the canals in the Jordaan. Matt got a kick out the fact that this particular canal boat was a delivery boat, much like a floating UPS truck. I wish we had gotten more shots of the houseboats that lined the canals in this area, as there were some real doozies, especially with respect to the creative gardening methods some of these folks get up to.

Notice the crazy tilt of the two houses on the corner. This is a constant feature throughout the city, and gives the streets a charmingly loopy, drunken feel even when one hasn't oversipped the gin.
