    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.

    ... workers. One cannot imagine the life they go through and for what.

    After a nice dinner snack at the sandwich place called Maoz which is again value for money, I head back to my Hotel in Zaandam. The day was filled with lots of memories and I cannot forget the beautiful weather where the sun sets at 10 PM.

    ... it was another very expensive museum!)

    Pete, Donna, Stu and I spent the day shopping at the plant nursery, gardening and watching movies. I continue to be amazed at how beautiful the plants here are, and how cheap! We picked up a whole tray of blue lobelia, about 30x40cm, for just a few Euro! The flowers are stunning and everything looks so healthy and vibrant.

    In an effort to see more vibrant natural scenery, the next day the five of us took a ...

    ... glasses for the juice. I filled my tiny glass up three times and I still wanted more. In any case, it was good and I'm glad I did not have to go out and find breakfast on my own.

    My hotel is conveniently located around the corner from the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. The Rijksmuseum is huge and I don't know if I will get to it, but it is a beautiful building. As I walked on may way to the museum area, I had to remember to watch for bikes ...

    ... my entire body weight in custard creams. Well, essentially the same story guys, except this time I wasn't in a forest. I was in a toilet cubicle, and I was throwing up. If it weren't for Cheryl guiding me back to sobriety via Facebook messenger and Snapchat (I am forever in your debt) and leading me through the process of getting to bed, I'm pretty sure I'd have been there til morning. Such a monstrous fail. But, as they say, "When in Amsterdam..." (I wonder how many times ...

    ... line we saw a whole lot of notes being exchanged with little return and when we saw the price (40 Euro) we bailed and went “show” hopping and trying to find ourselves the best bargain. The wide variety of “shows” was incredible and some even had set themes they kept to for the interested parties. It was a situation that probably will never happen again, walking down the street surrounded by women in glass doors and bargain shopping for a good time ha ha. ...
