    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.

    went up on the curb. I’m confident that even this situation would eventually
    feel navigable for someone who lives here, but trying to find our way simultaneously

    ... ladies looked sad and/or desperate. Maybe if it wasn't Saturday night. But then again most of the crowd was American tourists.

    We visited a true Amsterdam coffeeshop, frequented by locals -not many tourists - The Greenhouse Coffeeshop. Quite a different experience but not uncomfortable. More uncomfortable was needing a toilet at the Grasshopper Hotel and having to go inside!!!

    ... down in the aisle, it's by far the best place to sleep, so much leg room.

    Just half an hour outside Amsterdam we stop for a little cheese and clogs demonstration. This particular farm is run by an eccentric bunch. The cheese demonstration is first. It turns out to be more of a comedy show than a demonstration of any sorts, the guy has a particular fondness for Mumma Mel who he brings up the front to stand next to him. It is definitely one of those moments you have to be ...

    After a busy and very productive day MAP 1 and Robina said goodbye to Marie. The four of us took a transfer to the airport.

    Next stop…HAMBURG!

    ... when Queen Beatrix is nearby, when an angel gets its wings, and so on. Either way I didn't get quite the sleep in I was hoping for!

    Breakfast here is held in the pub downstairs, once they set up all the food, and ventilate the room of marijuana smoke. Since the weather was a bit drier today, I thought I'd try my sightseeing plan again. Once again it was quite easy to find my way, and first went to Rembrandtplein, where there is a group of statues re-enacting the scene ...
