This set of letters "I Amsterdam" is placed in front of the "De Waag" at Nieuwmarkt, This one will go to the RAI-building, half of February.

Two sets have a permanent place of stay: at the Museumplein (at the back of the Rijksmuseum) and at Schiphol Airport.

De Waag (Weigh House) is a 15th-century building on Nieuwmarkt square in Amsterdam.

It was originally a city gate and part of the walls of Amsterdam. The building has also served as a guildhall, museum, fire station and anatomical theatre, among others.

The Waag is the oldest remaining non-religious building in Amsterdam. The Waag is depicted in Rembrandt's 1632 painting The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp. The surgeons' guild commissioned this painting for their guildhall in the Waag.

Deze vind ik ook mooi Jos, alleen hou ik juist niet zo van HDR. Vind het wat te gekunsteld. Maar goed, smaken verschillen hè en ik weet dat er velen dol op zijn.

Groet, Christien.
