Sail 2005

The big event in Amsterdam is Sail. It happens only every five years (in Amsterdam). Tall ships come from around the world. And little boats from everywhere.

This ship is a replica, but I still wouldn't want to mess with it.

A man in a Tuindersvlet selling (or pretending to sell) cabbage! I love it.

Boat made with used 1.5 liter water bottles.

Our friend Suzy who came from Copenhagen.

It's hard not to be awed by these ships.

Now that's a good maidenhead.

On our boat.

On the Ij.

Barges still have to get through. There was one fatality this year, a person trying to jump from one boat to another with a plate of food. He slipped and hit his head.

Ferry boats get through as well.

There's Drew in the crowd on land.
