Artsy in Amsterdam

The Rijksmuseum was fantastic! I absolutely loved seeing some of the
finest oil paintings in the world, particularly Johannes Vermeer's
'The kitchen maid' and Willem Claesz Heda's picture-perfect 'Still
life with gilt goblet'. And, of course, Rembrant's 'The Night Watch'
was more impressive in real life than I could have imagined. I was
intrigued by the amount of movement Rembrant incorporated into the
group portrait.
