    Small but close

    Climbing up or down the stairs was the most perilous thing, especially with a backpack and luggage. The shower was in the same little room as the toilet, which made it complicated to wash ourselves. The room was very small and simple, but everything was clean. The good thing is that there are a bunch of good restaurants and bars next door, the flower market is on the next street and the city center and Red Light district are pretty close too.

    ... broken and dragged me over to her toilet to demonstrate how the doors lock was out which prevented her from being able to close the door. I awkwardly looked at the other 2 toilets which were free and wondered why someone would choose to do a poo in a public toilet in a cubicle where the door was broken. The lady continued to stare at me and say "doors broken, see" and pointing at the lock. She seemed to be waiting for a response so being the handy person ...

    ... light here that when it was 10 PM at night we just didn't realize it. We enjoyed a few brewskis and a light dinner at an outdoor restaurant on a narrow little street and then came back to the hotel.

    A full day but with a few holes in it since we missed our planned canal ride and the Van Gogh Museum. We'll do a canal ride in Bruges.

    Tomorrow we take the train to see Joke in Zaandam. See you there!

    NOTE:Added some pictures!

    ... elders who banned Spinoza for his radical theories issued their decree. Just outside the door there is a sign directing the visitor to the 'treasury', actually a cellar which houses a large collection of ritual objects in silver and gold, heavily embroidered torah covers and robes laced with gold thread and an extensive library of documents and rare manuscripts. I wonder how these riches fared during the Nazi occupation, but I can't find any information. The Great Portuguese Synagogue ...

    Amsterdam was great! We arrived Sunday afternoon and found our way from the central station to our hostel. Amsterdam has just about as many canals as it does streets and more bikes than you can imagine. We stayed in a 12-beddorm but it was very clean and besides one man snoring all night we slept pretty well. The next day we went on a tour through the same company we had used in Brussels and got to learn quite a bit about the founding and history of the city. The tour also took ...

    First and foremost, it's cold! I packed very light for this trip as I fully expected July to be quite warm and pleasant. After a walk around Amsterdam on my first day I was pretty surprised by how chilly it was. Luckily, I threw a pair of jeans and a sweater in my bag for the 'just in case' scenario, and I'm glad I did.

    Arriving at the Amsterdam Central Station from the airport was quick and painless. Everything in this country seems to be fully operational and seamless ...
