Wednesday - The Canals of Amsterdam: the book

Although at almost 100 euro a copy this tome can seem quite pricey, it does depict, one by one, with full colour pictures, illustrations and explanations, all the facades of the canal houses along the Unesco's heritage protected district of Amsterdam.

In Dutch and in English, it celebrates the 400th anniversary of the construction of the central main canals.

And now try and say this tongue twister, at least twice and at a speed:

Achtentachtig prachtige grachten
