A Classic from Amsterdam, the Swirling Sunset over the Canal
I was going through a few old photos and I was not sure if I ever posted this one or not!
I was in Amsterdam for the Reason conference (a gathering of a Libertarian bent). It was really cool because I got to meet Trey Parker and Matt Stone (creators of Southpark), who were also there at the conference. Towards the end of one day, we all got on a private boat to take us around the canals of Amsterdam. I got a chance to talk for a while with the former prime minister of Estonia when they made the transition to the flat tax. Very interesting to me… economics is one of my hobbies, so it was a kick to hang out with all these think-tank guys and gals.
At some point, I left the conversation to climb on top of the boat to take this photo.
