Politie Paarden Parade

Amsterdam's police force were all over the city a couple of weeks ago. At first we thought that there must have been a major drug bust, or perhaps the royal family were in town. But later we saw the tail end of a protest march weaving its way through town -- although we never did find out exactly what they were protesting against (or for).

Thanks to all who commented on our recent photos and our one year photoblogging anniversary. It'll take a couple of days for us to catch up on our fellow bloggers' sites. We just returned from a wonderful trip to Germany with our sister-in-law and her boyfriend ... we'll show a sample in a couple of days.

Wow. That's quite a large horse patrol. We have some horses in Seattle, but I don't think nearly this many. Very cool!

I like mounted police. They are very impressive.

We don't see many mounted police so it's really cool when I do! Great shot!

love this photo.
The horses don't have much room to stand, but they're doing such a great job.
lucky capture!
