yes. many people dream of living on the water here in europe that tends to mean a come out boat or something similar but how about a real house with old malt kongs and on up stairs and down stairs of course the experts at living on the water the dark we've been to a housing complex in amsterdam that floats the homes are environmentally friendly as well. living on water in the city center one day more than 100 people will live on the side canal in amsterdam. moscow 3 then his wife yvonne fun sark are among the 1st residents. to the slaves conclusion of a different way of life here. the waters sparkles and reflects everywhere.
