amsterdam is…well lets just say we’ll be back here some day. TICAL!
to be blunt, its been one of the high-lights of the trip. from one 400-yr old building to the next, the joint is jumping. Im chronic-ly adjusting my sense of history, as this is my first time in europe, the depth of of what has happened on these streets makes us just that much more of a speck in the ointment.
not to get too philsophical, its a great bike city too–click here for some video evidence of the mass proliferation of bicycles in the city, set to music from New Orleans that jessica recorded, but we just figured out how to get it up online. there are some pics in the movie too..
We checked out anne franks old hiding spot, the history museum, the heineken brewery tour, which turned out to be more like a heineken commercial with beer at the end, and the museum of torture.
jessica has been eating lots of street herring (JESSICA SEZ: its SOOO gooood).
And just walking around at night over all the canals is pretty sweet. to sum it up, the city goes down smooth, not corny.
***updated along with the pics–on our last night in amsterdam, we went to a 25th anniversary party of an amazing squat, called the Tetterode.(click for info)
were headed to the south of france tomorrow…
