We were walking along the side of one of the many canals in Amsterdam when we came across this group of sculptures. We had never heard of Johnny Jordaan so I took a photo to remind us to look him up on Wikipedia when we got home. We have done so. This is often a useful way to add to... More

I liked coffeeshop Johnny alot, I went every morning to get a takeaway. The shop is really small so not a place to chill but a great place to buy good quality at very reasonable prices.
