Congratulations for the pictures!

I love that city, I've been visiting it for work at least once a year and every time I get there I like it more and more.

The buildings in the diamond district are not interesting, but there are nice pictures to be taken there such as the specific Jew shops which are not usual outside Jewish districts as that one. The high concentration of orthodox Jew men with their curly hair and hats called for my attention.
In one of the pictures appears an Italian restaurant called Da Giovanni which is quite good and you may enjoy a good pizza with one of those local superb beers.

I've to say that this city is my favourite in the Benelux, closely followed by Ghent.

The station was nice the first time I saw it teen years ago, but now with the arrival of high speed trains and its reform has become to be one of the must beautiful in Europe.

The shield on the city hall is curious because has a lot of elements that came from the shield of Spain, it's not because of nothing, it's because in that age (XVI the century)it was part of the Spanish Crown, because of some heritages of the Spanish king Charles I.

I was last Monday very close to it, in Aarstelaar, and unfortunately didn't have time to get there and spend some hours there, however I expect to visit it again this summer.

I have some pictures of the city to add, but the quality is definitely not the same at all.
