I AMsterdam, or so the T-Shirts declare.
We took a canal tour of the city, which was pretty interesting. We got to see a lot of classic Dutch architecture. We opted out of the Van Gogh museum and instead visited the Anne Frank house. It was a sobering experience to be sure, and it made me think about how much things have changed in Europe in the past seventy years.
The food wasn't as good as in Brussels, but we did find a pretty decent Italian place for dinner.
We spent the rest of the day walking around Amsterdam, looking at the carnival that was going on downtown and getting ready for a travel day the next day. We bought tickets for the bus to Keukenhoff and Haarlem and returned to our hip hotel where I slept on the floor of our swanky little room.
