We started our day around 7:30 am. We walked from our hotel to the Anne Frank house. We had tickets for 9 am. It was a cool 60+ or -. Karly and I went out looking for coffee for her and something to eat for me while waiting on Chuck and Haley. We went to the pastry shop next door to our hotel where I got a bagel and OJ.
