Some Impressions of Amsterdam you can find here. Usually I try to go to Amsterdam once a year, it is not so far from the place I live and I like this city very much.
The sea palace, a floating Chinese restaurant near the Amsterdam Central Station is the first floating restaurant built in Europe. It is a smaller replica of the Jumbo Floating Restaurant in Aberdeen Harbour, Hong Kong

Suspension line in Wuppertal

March 31, 1901, is the date of the official inauguration of the suspension line in Wuppertal, Germany. The operational track is nearly 14 km. There are 20 stations. On a weekday 87 000 passenger use this suspended monorail in the valley of Wuppertal. If you will come to Germany you have to see this suspension line and you have to go by the Wuppertaler Schwebebahn. It is nice to see the river Wupper under your feet most of the way.

A restaurant like a museum in a station in Paris

I did not expect to find it here. Here is the Gare de Lyon in Paris and what I found was a restaurant a famous restaurant. You can see it in some movies, such as Nikita, Place Vendôme or Mr. Bean's Holiday. Coco Chanel, Salvador Dali, Brigitte Bardot and many other well known person have been regulars here. This belle-epoque restaurant was opened in 1901 and the name was Buffet de la Gare de Lyon. In 1963 it was renamed Le train Bleu to honor the famous historic train with the same name.
