Travel and Places
Amsterdam. One of my favorite places. This sign is not far from the van Gogh museum. My favorite picture is Starry Night, which was on loan to the Getty Museum in nearby Los Angeles while I was in Amsterdam. Sigh. But I did buy a necktie with Starry Night imprinted on it just outside the museum. What a phenomenal artist, van Gogh, especially the backgrounds.

The Dancing House! (Prague’s Dancing House is one of the most famous buildings in Europe. It was designed by Czech architect Vlado Milunic in co-operation with Canadian architect Frank O. Gehry. The building Commissioned by the Dutch Bank ING, was constructed between 1992-1996 in deconstructivist style. It resembles two dancers, with the glass construction in the shape of a women wearing a skirt. This is why the building is also being called “Fred and Ginger”!)
