In just a few hours (51.5 to be exact, but who’s counting) I will be winging my way to Amsterdam for a couple of weeks. My husband and I have rented an apartment about 5 blocks from the Rijksmuseum and another block away from the van Gogh Museum. I am taking my camera and hoping to get lots of photos I can include in the e-textbook I am writing from my class. We are also going to visit some of the other towns ands cities in the Netherlands as well. And I certainly hope to see the Ghent Altarpiece in the St. Bavon Cathedral.

Delft, Gouda, Haarlem, Rotterdam, Ghent, Bruges, Den Hagg (The Hague) – and more, I can hardly contain my excitement. If you have been in the area, tell me what I “Must See”. I do not want to miss anything!

I love the Ghent Altarpiece! In fact, I just wrote a post a few days ago about van Eyck and van der Weyden, two of my favorite painters. I only used a bit of the altarpiece though. It's just so big!

You must be back by now. I just came by again to tell you that I tagged you. Come and see!
