i'm posting a bit out of order. i owe you pictures of the keukenhof and the surrounding tulip fields, but i need a lot of more time to filter through and edit the images. seriously, i think we took over 700+ images over the past two days -- way too shutter happy for our own good.
today, we found ourselves at the rijksmuseum. the museum was re-opened in april 2013 after a 10 year renovation. i don't know what it was like before, but it's a really nice space now with plenty of skylights and a mix of old and modern architecture.
these photos are from my iphone. i had my camera with me but find it so difficult to take good pictures in a museum. the next best thing is my iphone with HDR turned on.

pete and i found sometime to travel this month, this time to london and holland. pete's going to post about london next week and i'll try to give you the play-by-play of our activities this week.
we got landed from heathrow this afternoon and had an early dinner of roti-kip at riaz before strolling through vondelpark. i kind of like this park -- lots of picnics with young people (peacefully, by the way) riding bicycles, smoking pot, drinking a ton of beer and wine and dancing to house music. it's a pretty nice way to spend a sunny warm afternoon.
