After a few freezing cold days mother nature finally managed to transform some of the major Amsterdam canals into dark black ice. All ready for a true blue Dutch tradition – ice skating!

We obviously grabbed our chance to sneak out of the office during lunchtime to ride the Prinsengracht on ice skates. Armed with a few cameras including the LomoKino, to shoot some great pics on the Prinsengracht with the Westerkerk on the background.

Including a cool icy super movie

De Pulitzer Hotel provided some nice warm chocolatemilk and soup for free – a real ‘koek & zoopie" is how we call it in Holland. The local tourists didn’t understand that they could actually get FREE drinks + soup, so after some shooting of “we have free pee-soup” they finally came closer to consume some as well. While we were making some hilarious jokes saying: yes, free hot pee soep. Just peed in it.". Hehe.
