September 22nd 2012, we joined the 25th wedding anniversary of some friends. In the canals of Amsterdam they offered us a ride, but before that we enjoyed a musical show coming from a small vessel.
More of this exciting show can be found on www.muziekboot.nl but here is a picture I made. On his website the musicboat entertainer Reinier Sijpkens talks about: Trumpets, barrel-organ, a dancing painted boat, mostly classical music, a happy man, who enjoys performing by surprise or admission for people on the bridges and the waterside. To enjoy some of the music he performs, dig into his site.
During the canalride a view on the new EYE Film Institute Netherlands along the banks of “het IJ”
And the leaning Westertoren along the the banks of the Prinsengracht canal.
