You've now seen our apartment and our 2-block street (Elandsgracht) here in Amsterdam. Here now are the two canals that run perpendicular to our street!
On the busiest end of our street, where the Johnny Jordaan plaza is (last post) and from where you would head into the center of the city, is the Prinsengracht canal. I have actually gone a street down to look back at the bridge that takes you across the canal on the left to our street (so our apartment is off to the left). There in the distance is the Westerkerk, which is on the corner near the Anne Frank House. It's the church she could see out of her top-floor window while she was in hiding during WWII.
Now walk the two blocks down our street to the other end where you see the Lijnbaangracht canal. I've done the same thing again--walked to the next bridge and looked back at the bridge that takes us to our street. It's the only white wooden bridge in A'dam thus far that I've seen. Our apartment is 10 storefronts down on the right, on the other side of the street. Our grocery store, BTW, is across the bridge on the left about a block away.
So there you have it! I'm quite sure I'll be showing you more canals and bridges over time but THESE are ours. They really are the bookends to our wee street!
