IT’S EASY TO BE HAPPY – Bubbly Amsterdam

When you go to Amsterdam you’ll have the opportunity to spend your days on the red light district, going trough all the coffee shops, spend some time in all of the museums that exist in that city or simply lose yourself in a city that has an amazing soul, in my opinion you must use them all.tumblr_mdwqxbM1bM1rjurono1_500
On the day that I took this pictures I had decided that it would be a cultural day, bearing in mind that I’m a history graduate I had to spend some time “studying” the history of this city, but since I don’t consider myself as a “normal person” instead of going to the Anne Frank house I decided to spend some time walking around on the Jewish quarter and going to the Portuguese synagogue and the Jewish museum. tumblr_mcb4upzIYZ1rjurono1_500
The hours that I spent immersed in history remind me of the evil that exist in mankind and left me with no hope.tumblr_mfasw2Grdi1rjurono1_500

After I left the museum I could only walk around while thinking about all that was shown to me, the bad and the worst,tumblr_mcb3klfr8f1rjurono1_400

but after a couple of hours I found myself entering one of the mains squares in Amsterdam and I faced something that was able to change my mood

A street artist, one of those that are only doing soap bubbles, with something so simple he was surrounded by kids that we’re trying to catch the bubbles and that we’re laughing as if they where doing the most amazing thing.tumblr_mcb51qIu0l1rjurono1_500
More than all the surrounding adults where smiling and most probably dying to join them. I know that even today, a couple of years later, I still envy their ability of being happy with so little.

    There’s no doubt children can always put a smile on your face. What could be a better combination than bubbles and little happy faces to bring sunshine.

      I completely agree, and since then I always spend too much time taking pictures around this kind of street artists.

    What a nice pick-me-up to come across after studying the atrocities of history.
