Yesterday we went for a visit to the Museum of Modern Art in Amsterdam, that is close to the Rijksmuseum you can seen in the background. The wall of containers was raised for the arrival of President Obama who landed by helicopter here last monday. It was said to "protect" the Van Gogh Museum and the art inside, I don't know against what but I think it was just a security wall. Obama was not even allowed to walk the few meters from his helicopter to the museum but had to ride in his own car the "beast".
Here you can see the Van Gogh Museum just peeping above the wall, that workers were demolishing already.
This woman didn't mind the wall and enjoyed her moment of sunshine.
And fortunately Obama is still laughing, here with Wim Pijbes the director of the Rijksmuseum who grabbed his moment to have a photo with him to promote the museum in the american newspapers coming friday. Obama has left our country for Belgium now and things are back to normal, the roads are open again, people can sit on their balcony and climb in trees again. Now Brussels can have the "fun".
