Castles built on sand




Castles built on sand

Amsterdam is not built on soil like most cities. It is built on the sandy delta of the River Amstel.
Because of this there is a continual state of construction in the city.
Replacing parts that have become uneven due to subsidence.
I caught this typical piece of construction on my mobile phone this morning in the Indischebuurt in Amsterdam Oost.
