We made it!

We made it! Well at least to Amsterdam. Yesterday was
challenging adjusting to the time change, but we are feeling refreshed today
and ready to take on the days activities.

Here are some first impressions of Amsterdam:

1.      Everyone rides a bike and no bike helmets. You can
be wearing stilettos and a mini skirt, you still ride a bike.

2.      Anything and everything goes.

3.      They play a lot of 1990’s American music.

4.      People are helpful if you ask, but they don’t go
out of their way to help.

5.      All the stairways are spiral and small.

6.      There are no fat people here, probably because everyone
rides a bike everywhere.

7.      Everything is served in miniature sizes,
including coffee and beer.

8.      Cheese here is good and cheap!

Today we are off to the Anne Frank house, a few museums and
a bike tour!

Tomorrow we are off to Ethiopia!


  1. Woot! Woot! I hated that there were no fat people in Spain, either. :( Us Americans have over-indulgence down! I am happy to hear you made it, and am thinking of you both.

    Love! Bridget

  2. Awesome!!! You are almost there!!!!!!
