Amsterdam : 400 years canals.

This year 2013 celebrates my city ( Amsterdam ) the four hundred years existence of her famous canals. Therefore I give a map of amsterdam with pictures I made of the canals and the place where I took them.

We start with the the Brouwersgracht and the Kloveniersburgwal.
