One Word Challenge: Benches From Around the World

“There are no benches in Amsterdam,” we complain to our Air B and B host Michéle, while rubbing our sore feet.

“There are benches everywhere,” Michéle says, astonished, “in front of every house.”

“But those are private,” I point out.

“Pffft! I sit there anyway; it does not matter…”

At any rate, due to my inability to recognize a bench when I see one, I don’t have a single photo of a bench in Amsterdam.

I did, however, find a few artsy benches in Rotterdam, such as this laser-cut metal one, possibly the most comfortable of the Dutch bunch. (Holland)
