Amsterdam is one crazy town. I’m currently in the Netherlands visiting several climate adaptation projects (itinerary, here), most of which were paid for and built by the government. I’m blown away by how advanced this country’s research and technology is. I’ll have more on those projects, soon.
So, I convinced my colleagues to take a canal tour (e.g., get super-tweaked on high-octane caffeine and then drink beers for the rest of the day). Amsterdam is a true floating city! And, as you can see, the place is utter chaos - an emulsion of confused identity. There’s so much going on at every turn, and it’s quite difficult to comprehend what I was seeing.
