It rains a lot in Amsterdam.
Especially in the winter months of December and January.
Yes, it does get very windy too.
And the days get short. I would call 8 hour days very short.
So go to work in the dark, and come back home in the dark.
This shot is taken a little before 9 am one such wet wintery morning.
And how does everyone commute to work in Amsterdam. They bike. Obviously. Why not?
