Canals

After a high speed train ride from Viersen, Germany, where we were staying with a friend, we arrived in Amsterdam for a jam-packed day of some touristy musts, like touring the Ryks Museum, Anne Frank House, and taking the canal/harbor boat tour. But in-between, we walked and walked and walked along canals, over many bridges, and down side streets. One day in this city isn't enough!

Bike park

Had NEVER seen the likes of this! We were here on a week day/work day and I was stunned at seeing all these bikes, seemingly regardless of the weather! That day was overcast, cold, windy, with rain showers off and on.

Central city

Charming side streets! Coming from a pot-phobic culture, seeing sidewalk signs advertising marijuana seeds and pot/hash bars down such side streets was amusing.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:So much to see and do here!
  • Cons:One day is NOT enough!
  • In a nutshell:Much more than just legalized marijuana in this town!
