And a Little Amsterdam to Boot

A full day layover in Amsterdam before being taken back to the real world. Can’t beat that!

Started with a funnel of fries and a fairly nasty curry sauce (should have stuck with mayonaise):

Then a walk for six hours around the entire tourist-part of the city. Fun avoiding the legion of bikes, stoned tourists, and trams. Cars are easy.

I know it’s lame to fall in love with something as obvious as Amsterdam, but I could keep weaving through the circular streets for another six if I had to. The black canals plus “I’m beautiful without really trying” architecture just works.

Ended the last night in Europe with a vomit-inducing carnival ride — up a few stories then upside down and fliperoo! How cool is that: I got to see the whole Dam Square upside down!
