Koningsdag 2014, Amsterdam

Koningsdag is a National Dutch Holiday to celebrate King Willem-Alexander’s birthday, so I rode into Amsterdam..

036

(the Vondelpark)

I started in the Jordaan district, sound systems are in every Plein or square,

002

People are allowed to freely trade on the street on the Kings Day, a tradition long since held ,

007

I had to avoid some some of the busiest streets with my bike…and I heard that Koningsdag has the highest rate of bike theft during the year, so I wasn’t going to lock it anywhere..

008

 the canals were practically gridlocked with boats full with revelers…

more boats crossing the Utrechtsestraat to the Amstel..

044

now, I reckon you’re either a sailor or a cyclist…

if I was in the market for a boat though, I’d like some amphibious shit like this…

046

more sound systems blast out of people sitting rooms, the bigger the crowd outside, the better the sounds usually..the Utrechtsestraat area..

another sound system in the Jordaan…
