The women take over this week as we remember the dead of World War II and celebrate freedom, while three peregrine falcon chicks escape their eggs on a ledge high above the Rijksmuseum.

And as cafe life gets back to normal in the Netherlands, we wonder why everyone seems to be drinking more beer at home.
