Everyone else, Happy New Year!
My co-worker Ben Culpin put together a nice video of his time since arriving in Amsterdam-- including some great shots of the city, our christmas party and NYE.
Last night we rung in the new year at the corner of Noordermarkt and no matter which direction we turned, there were fireworks going off all around and people lighting any and everything on fire. Needless to say, the night turned out wonderful! I hope yours was just as great.
Check out Ben's video:
The morning after, you've got to appreciate the Dutch outlook:
"In Rotterdam, a bakery burnt down and 12 homes were evacuated. In Friesland a farm was destroyed by fire and dozens of cows killed."
You know, "mainly peaceful"...
