1946. View on the river Het IJ and the habor in Amsterdam. In the foreground the De Ruijterkade. The river Het IJ or Binnen-IJ separates the center of Amsterdam from the northern part of the city (Amsterdam-Noord) and was originally a bay of the Zuiderzee. The name IJ is related to the (West) Frisian Ae, Ee or That which means “water”. #amsterdam #1946 #het #ij
The night we arrived, my mom and I walked into town from our hotel, and found a similiar outdoor cafe to have some apple juice and fondue while we stared up at the glacier and at our lovely surrondings.
