Besides the Holland polder, out in the countryside, Astrid and I have met in nearby Utrecht on photo hunts (3 times thus far), half an hour's train ride southeast of Amsterdam.
Here's the Oude Gracht (Old Canal) that runs through the center of the city, on a cold January morning.
This is the same canal that Astrid showed here on Monday.
[Today I'm in Amsterdam.]
