Now that I'm back in Amsterdam for two weeks, after a quick weekend in Atlanta, I want to switch gears this week and take you to Leiden
, 25 miles (40km) SW of Amsterdam.
Leiden is Rembrandt's
birthplace, in 1606, and where he started his painting. Donica and I took a day-trip there by train a week ago Saturday and enjoyed 5 hours of getting acquainted with the city.
At one point we climbed the city's citadel for great views of the city. Here you see the Hooglandse Kerk rising high above the surrounding rooftops. It's the church of St. Pancras, built in the 15th century. Even from that far away, you can see the rooster on top of the weather vane! :)
