In our family is normal to have a walk in each Christmas day, in the evening. Usually the main attraction is the amusement park where the nephews are enjoying the most. I wanted to keep this tradition and this was the occasion to visit Amsterdam Light Festival. Starting with December, for almost 2 months, different light statues or games are set on the canals and in the botanical garden of Amsterdam. The walking route is about 3 kilometers, but it will take you more than 1 hour to see them all. There’s also a boat tour, but not all the lighten objects are visible from the boat. The official site of this event is here.

What I liked most? There was a set for a light to fall down into a plate full of water. The mechanism was with pulley and a curious noise was heard due to that. The entire work is described here.
