Merry-Go-Round, Big Wheels, Little People & A Stroll

Usually, I can't be bothered by theme parks and fairs (although I found the one at Oktoberfest impressive and fun), but ever since Lauren moved to Amsterdam I've participated in other activities that I'd usually take for granted. Not long ago one (in Dutch: 'kermis', which evolved from this) set up shop on Dam Square and Lauren couldn't wait to go for a spin. Who was I to deny that. Plus, I'd never taken pics from that high up before, certainly not smack in the middle of the city center. The five minutes on the Ferris Wheel were short, but sufficient for a couple of snapshots and subsequently this quick post. There's A First Time For Everything There's A First Time For Everything There's A First Time For Everything There's A First Time For Everything The kermis casts a particular light on people passing by.

All feeling like giants in a small, yet grand city again. Big or small, wheels do make the world go round. (And plenty to see on foot, too :)) A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block A Walk Around The Block Not bad for a casual Thursday evening.
