Sail Amsterdam, 17-22 August 2005

For the event 'Sail Amsterdam' hundreds of boats from all over the world come to the capital every five years. Living near the IJ, Sail was literally on my doorstep.


This boat is from Indonesia.


Third block from the left is where my apartment is situated. No not at the waterside... It's the fifth house from the water.


Same boat from Indonesia, but now with lots of men doing scary stuff...


It got a bit crowded in the weekend... View from the roof top of my apartment block.


View from the roof by night. Fireworks every day!
