The (late) Christmas card - part 3

I must admit my preconceived ideas of Amsterdam were both confirmed and challenged. I had imagined scores of British tourists walking the streets off their faces (this turned out to be true), but had not imagined the craziness of new years evening.

Nothing can really prepare you for the onslaught of fireworks, noise and chaos that is 1/1/08 at 00:00:01. People were letting off fireworks everywhere and anywhere, which were crashing into buildings, canals, and (more worryingly) people - myself included at one point! You really have to pay attention not to walk in the firing range of any crackers.

The city itself is beautiful. The canals, buildings, and diverse range of people in the city make it unique and really pretty.
