One of the things I like most about Amsterdam East is that, in Oost, one can still find areas exuding a free, bohemian spirit, where life looks exactly as it should be: simple. And that, to me, is very reassuring.
Have you ever walked along the Dijksgracht on a summerish day? It`s a little wonder in Amsterdam, an oasis of peace, where bed sheets dry in the sun, hanging outside of houseboats, and the wood used for heating in winter is piled up on the shore.
Maybe the photos below – taken this past Saturday – will convince you to go and see it for yourself. And, if you do so, you can stop for a drink by the water at nearby Hanneke`s Boom, or for dinner just next door, at Mediamatic.
