79.Amsterdam flower market.

Some pics of Amsterdam's colorful and lively flower market.
This market is a matter of floating market, one of the few in the world, and the flower stalls stand on the houseboats. Here you can find almost all sorts of tulips and of course you can buy them and also buy the bulbs to plant by you own in your home, and that's what my sister and me did!
In Amsterdam there's The Amsterdam Tulip Museum too that we visited (here in this post there's one pic of it: Amsterdam photo diary), where you can find all history of this type of flower, its variations and its origin and you'll be surprised to know that it doesn't come from Netherlands but from it's from Turkey ;-)
