Summer in Downtown, Amsterdam - The Old City Centre of Amsterdam
I have been having a pretty rough day lately. I had 2 days off but spent most of the time with my dog Gigi because she needed me. Her surgery went well and she was doing fine until yesterday. Her stitches are slowly getting dry, causing so much irritation for her. She constantly tries to itch herself and her whole body is now red. She couldn't reach her stitch part area but she tried and because of her irritation, I have to stay alert always and be more careful. She doesn't sleep at night and walk around because her body is changing and this surgery is enormous for her. The doctor said she will be recovered soon and tomorrow I am going to collect medicines for her to reduce her irritation.
Anyway, about my life, I don't have much to say because it is always the same. I sometimes read the news about Ukraine and Kharkiv, sometimes I discuss the situation with my Ukrainian colleague who also came from Kharkiv like me. We are in the same condition, and we understand each other's feelings.
I know I am late writing about my Sunday and also I don't have any specific things to say about this Sunday.
So, I decided to write about one of the Sunday stories that I spent in Amsterdam during the summer.
Amsterdam is not only known for its history and tourist spots but also it is famous for its different activities among the locals. Tourists from all over the world come here no matter whether it is cold or hot. But of course, summer is the preference for tourists. I remember when I visited Amsterdam for the first time, I was feeling overwhelmed and didn't know what to do. I wanted to see everything which was impossible and ended up walking on the streets.
Whenever I ask people what to do in Amsterdam, I get a lot of ideas and choices. Some give me the news of festivals, and concerts, some talk about attending different events, some says about food and museum, and some talk about weird things. At first, I used to feel awkward but now I don't feel uncomfortable at all. But I know the culture now, I know what I like and what I want to explore. This is an advantage of living in a multicultural city, eventually, you will find something suitable for yourself.
It feels good walking on the streets of Amsterdam during summer. If you can avoid the heat wave, you definitely gonna enjoy your walk.
The streets of Amsterdam are always busy and crowded. Luckily I found one street that was less crowded during lunch hour. I don't know why...
Seeing the canal and boats is one of my favorite things to do, I like watching the boats and the canal from the walkway bridge. I took a lot of photos there...
It's always a pleasure to experience the astounding and picturesque architecture and canal-side perspective, which often makes me wonder and curious to know more about the history of the city. Many people like to spend time just walking on the canal-side streets. Even some like to take fancy breakfast, lunch, or dinner near the canal.
I find Damrak Avenue, Dam square, Kalverstraat, and Da Wallen are the busiest locations or spots in Amsterdam. They are very close to the central station and often remain crowded...
Some events and concerts take place at Dam Square, the old city center of Amsterdam. I attended only one which was free but the big events and concert locations are different...
Next time I will go for cheese tasting...
I hope you have enjoyed this short photo tour with me. I will see you in my next post...
Thanks for reading... See you soon...

Your summer photos are brilliant. Some day i like to go back in places that i was with kids, and specialy when there are days thet we remember very well.
Good thet Gigi is recovering, people after surgery itches are irritating to.
For Europeans, summer means travel and fun. I am lucky that I got the chance to stay in such a city. Yes, this is temporary I know but I will try my best to explore the city more...
Gigi got new medicine today for her condition, I hope she will be recovered soon...

Why im mention , i dident do comment farming. I writed one comment
It appeared that your account has been engaging in comment farming with that other account.
Thank you for explaining.
Can you please explain? I'm upvoting all comments of @zirochka who is in Kiev and @priyanarc who is an Ukrainian refugee in the Netherlands to support them. Is that not allowed? The rewards that they are getting are helping them in their difficult situation.
Could you, please make your curation more versatile. There are many other Hiveians including Ukrainians that would use your votes.
It looks like it has been an attempt to farm easy curation rewards with no effort.
Also, we commented on a few of your posts about plagiarism. It appears that you were plagiarising sentences from various sources (mix-matching sentences from different sources).
We never received a response.
You have not been blacklisted, by the way.
I know my curation has been one sided since February but it really was not farming. It honestly didn't even cross my mind that it could be perceived as such. But I understand your position and will look for other people to support as well.
I have read your comments and I will improve my posts going forward. I have talked with some people to see what could be considered as plagiarism on my posts. I have used some sources as reference but since I tried to understand and research the content, and describe it from my own perspective I didn't think it was necessary to mention them. I will change that and put references going forward.
Thank you for discussion.

I wish Gigi well soon.
It's good to have someone you can talk to and who can understand what you're going through.
I liked the photos, the buildings that are on the river bank caught my attention, it almost seems that the river could enter if the water flow rises a few centimeters.

Gigi will be better and I am waiting for her quick recovery. The doctor assured me that her health condition is good and she doesn't have any serious issues for now.
I have found some people here with whom I talk, I share my emotions with them and they also feel comfortable with me as well.
That is my question and I was curious about this topic too when I saw those buildings. What will happen if the flood occurs and the water level rises; well probably one day I will get the answer...
My best wishes for you!
Thank you so much...
Wishing a speedy recovery for gigi ,,i can understand how difficult it is to see your dog suffer and you can’t help it.
It was a big decision and very difficult for me to decide, I hope she will be fine and will recover soon...
I love Amsterdam and I have been there many times, I have seen in your beautiful photos many places that I have visited and that I remember with love, you made me go back there for a moment. Thanks so much for your sharing.
Amsterdam is really a cool location for relaxation and there are so many places to see. I feel like I have seen nothing. I am glad that you enjoyed the photos and were able to recall your sweet memories of Amsterdam...
Very true, even though I've been there many times, every time there's something new to discover, every route has a story. One day I'd like to go and live there, you know. Happy Holidays ;).
Dogs and stitches don't go together but they will heal. Glad you have people to talk to. You are always in my thoughts.
Today when I came home from work, I saw her bandage is open and fallen on the ground and she was sleeping. She is so clever that she has managed to open a bandage of her own. I wasn't expecting this kind of moment at all... Ya, dogs and stitches don't go together, especially if the dog is like Gigi...
Thanks for being such a great friend...
Bless her! My pleasure. ❤
Amsterdam is a great city for a tourist, especially when the sun is shining Priya.
I feel for Gigi and hope the irritation from the stitches has stopped now.
Dogs are so darned intelligent, that they find a way to scratch, trust me I have my share of dogs and they drive you mad, leaving them alone is just heaven to them as they will find a way.
Sending her big hugs.
My dog Gigi suffered a lot and is doing fine now. Her wounds are now dry and her irritation stopped now. Overall her health is better and she is doing good. I love walking in such places, it gives me a lot of knowledge...
Thank you so much @tengolotodo
aww I am so happy Gigi is fine now😁

Thank you so much @soltecno, I really enjoy taking photos though I don't do it often like before... Gigi is fine now and healthy. Her wound is better and she is doing great...
