In Amsterdam, Saskatchewan, you could lose yourself for days on the many narrow and twisting streets.

Amsterdam, Saskatchewan was named by wistful immigrants who looked out upon the bald expanse of frozen prairie and were reminded of the qaint canals, the leaning buildings and the bustle of commerce in the cultural nexus of their homeland. This image from Google Maps evokes the smell of stroopwafels and the clank of bicycles wending their way over cobbled roads.
