Check out this video on YouTube of “A Day In Amsterdam”. The tourists who made it film for about 5 minutes without narrating. You’ll hear the clang of the tram’s bells, see the various bikes and riders making their way (sometimes perilously) along the narrow streets and see many different boats, including those docked on the side of the canals in which people live and others where the occupants are meandering along as they cruise through the canal system. We love this video as it really gives a sense of standing along the street watching it all. The only thing missing is the smell of food wafting from the local Febo (a popular food automat), sugary pastries from one of the many bakeries and fresh bread being sold at the local bread shop.
