    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.

    ... on fashion photography, as well as a few more obscure exhibits entitled "Young Lust" (more boobs and bits) and finally an exhibition about drug abuse. Feeling cultured, we next opted to visit the Rijksmuseum, which is an art gallery including some of the masters - Rembrandt and Vermeer, but sadly no Van Gogh. This museum was enormous, but very interesting, and we spent a few hours wandering the three floors. This included a rather amusing incident where an elderly French ...

    ... naked women lined behind glass windows marked with small red lights, some knocking trying to entice the passers-by who really are window shopping, others just sitting on a stool talking on their mobile or filing their nails looking bored. Any big city has prostituted, they're just not quite as out in the open for all to see! Apparently the windows are rented for €100-150 per shift, and a good prostitute can bring in around €600. If anyone is interested, ...

    ... the canal bus to continue the sightseeing. We got off and walked past the home where Anna Frank wrote here Diary, We continued walking these old streets along the canals, looking at the Old Church and the New Church, to my eye they both looked pretty old. We continued our stroll until we reached the centre of Amsterdam; the Dam. We spotted the Palace, and lots of other old buildings.

    The afternoon was spent ...

    ... it is always very busy because it is the capital of the Netherlands. Over a million people live in this city...and they mostly ride bikes - much like NYC - there is little parking and it is expensive. So, we must watch for bikes coming and going!! Everyone is young. It seems that way...We had a walking tour of the city from 10 until after noon. Our guide was great. She was ...

    When we woke up this morning we got on a tram and went in to Dam Square where we got some cash out, grabbed something to smoke and headed to the train station. We bought some tickets and got on a train to Amersfoort, then to Apeldoorf where we got a bus to the Apenheul primate park. I got some fries and we had a smoke before going in. We had been very highly recommended going to see wildlife while stoned... So we walked up to the entrance, and by that time the majority of the effect ...
