Photos From Amsterdam (4)

These are photos my sister took on our walk around her neighborhood on New Year's Day. One of them is the aftermath of a string of 300,000 firecrackers exploding the night before. Later that week she talked to the Indonesian man who set them off. He said he set so many off to drive away evil spirits and bring luck for the new year. It wasn't until later we realized that the horrible consequence of the tsunami in his homeland may have had something to do with the number of firecrackers he detonated.
