I've found the UK trucks smaller than the one's you see in US. Guess this is because the trucks are made in proportions to fit the chunnel trains.
I'm tempted to post loads of holland photos here. But then, don't want to hijack this thread

coffee shop experiences might attract mods attention and subsequent infractions. proceed cautiously.
for general public, coffee shop is not the place one goes for coffee. cafe is where one goes for coffee in netherlands.
coffee shops - i'm not going to that topic even.

Oh yes! Thanks for reminding me MX6.

I intended to include the warning to proceed cautiously but forgot as i got mixed up with work and posted in a haste!

And yes with the short chat i had with chikkars, he has had such a memorable experience in the coffee shop that he will not forget for a long time to come What say chikkars??

One place I love to visit, any time of the year! Been over 10 years since my last trip.
Do post more pictures of the city, if possible. Have you been to Madurodam yet? Its a 'Must-do' while in Holland.

The best time to visit Netherlands is during spring when the Tulip festival kicks off in Keukenhoff. Nothing to beat the flowers. Interestingly, Tulips aren't native dutch. They are originally from Mongolia.

Hey Nitin,

I dint visit Madurodam. However, I did go to Zaans Schans which is similar to Madurodam (I Suppose?). I am trying to see as many places as I can during my short stay here

Thanks Sami. That pic is from the Entertainment square in Amsterdam. There was also an old guy performing some yoga stunts using ropes. Could not click pics though.

Your pictures tell that you had been to De Wallen. Well, how did you like the place? I've been there once in 2008 and I absolutely love it. Planning to be there this New Year as well.
