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.

It was great. Lot of food but great.

We then went back to the square we met to meet up with two of Menzies friends from Melbourne. They were lovely and we went for drinks until late.

They continued on into the morning and Maggie and I went back to the hostel.

... of religious and domestic wood carving and ceramics from the 13th to the 20th centuries.

We took a break in Museum Square and then went to the Van Gogh Museum, which is very close by. This houses an extensive collection of Van Gogh’s very large body of work, from his early days as an art student to paintings from the last months of his life. The paintings were accompanied by very helpful commentaries. There was also a display showing how some ...

... Once we arrived, we spotted out hyper-Dutch hotel (see pictures) right away and dropped our bags off before heading into Amsterdam city. Emerging from the station, we were greeted by a beautiful, albeit busy and tourist-y city. Walking down the main thoroughfare, we came to our first destination- Madame Tussauds. Lining up in the rain was made easier by the free umbrellas given to us by the staff, and more entertaining by the carnival in the square next to us. ...

... rice) on Friday, and organized dinner at one of Amsterdam's finest restaurants for Saturday, my actual birthday. Both nights were shared with Margot, Herman, Jan and Cleo. On the Friday night we were enjoying appetizers at home, when the doorbell rang. We weren't expecting anyone so Cole went down the stairs to open the front door and I followed after him. To my complete surprise there were two people coming up the stairs, looking up at me. ...
