019: Tourist taking pictures
Amsterdam is a very popular touristic location in the world. In 2017, more than eight million foreign visitors have been to Amsterdam. Also among the Dutch, Amsterdam is very popular. They go for sightseeing, shopping, or for visiting the museums. Many tourists will flock the historic center: mainly the Dam Square, Leiden Square, the Red Light District, and Museum Square. Since I’ve studied in Amsterdam for four years, I’ve spent many days walking around in those locations and beyond. When I was back in the Netherlands in 2010, I’ve spent one day in Amsterdam. I visited the Free University, spent some hours walking in the historic center, and took some pictures like a foreign tourist. Like this picture, where other tourists were taking pictures of each other.
