Miffy is a famous cartoon bunny created by Dutch artist Dick Bruna in 1955, which makes 2015 her 60th birthday. To celebrate, there are Miffy-centered events in the Netherlands and in Japan all year-round. One of the events is the Miffy Art Parade: 60 artists were given a Miffy-shaped white statue to customize. Some of the statues are now exhibited on Museumplein in Amsterdam.

ArtZuid 2015 is an open-air international sculpture exhibition. It takes place in the Apollobuurt neighbourhood of Amsterdam Zuid until September 9th.

While I was in the area, I made a detour to the Amsterdam Olympic Stadium.

In mid-April, I went to the Keukenhof, one of the world’s largest flower gardens, near Amsterdam. It is only open for 2 months every year (from mid-March to mid-May). It was a bit too early for tulips during my visit but the park has many other types of flowers.

Information

On my last morning in San Francisco, I checked out of my hotel early then walked around Market Street until it was time to go to the airport.
