Though sometimes the 'Golden Years' seem more like tarnished brass, they are not the end of adventure. I invite you to follow me as I transcend from full-time government employee to full-time life observer. I'll cover life, government, travel, food, gardening, whatever crosses my path.
J - Jewish Settlement and Anne Frank House, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Right at the top of my list of places to see in Amsterdam was the Anne Frank House. Last year her book, The Diary of Anne Frank, was the topic of my letter D in the challenge. While I had hoped to spend more time in the Jewish quarter of town, I was not able to fit it in. I did tour the home where she stayed with her family, seen here. I have no interior photos so I am guessing they were not allowed, so check out the website if you are interested.
Here is the statue of Anne in front of the Westerkerk.
I also saw the Tuschinski Theatre built by a Polish Jewish businessman Abraham Tuschinski.
I blogged last year during A to Z about The Diary of Anne Frank.Have you read the book or seen a version of it on film. Or a documentary? Would you like to visit the home if you haven't yet done so? Bonus: Daylily 'Jolyene Nichole'
I am officially falling behind in reading blogs and commenting. With preparations for Easter nearing I wonder if I will ever catch up. How about you?
