I'm wrapping up my time here in Holland with packing up my suitcase tonight, filling up my iPod for the flight home and saying lots of goodbyes. Yesterday, I went to the Bijenkorf in Amsterdam, which is one of the few department stores here in town. Lots of books, fashion, modern furniture and, surprise, a very nice selection of CDs.
Check out the photo above of the store's weekly CD top 10. Keane, Amy McDonald, Seal and The Killers are big sellers here. (Note the prices of CDs in Holland. They cost almost 20 euros each. That converts to almost 30 U.S. dollars! People that complain about the CD prices in the States are getting such a deal.)
