... use to carry up furniture. They cant get it up the stair because their appartments are so thin - there is taxing on how many square feet of ground space you take up, so people optimize their space vertically. Which means they cant get their furniture up the stair haha. I also did a bike tour of the city which was really interesting.
The weekend after I visited Amsterdam, I got to visit a nearby town (in Friesland) with the son of the dutch people I was staying ...
... when you leave. We had a drink in a bar and then went back to the hotel, so not a late night by any stretch but lots later than we'd managed previously!
Today we headed to Berlin. Our train wasn't until 3pm, so we wandered around Amsterdam in the morning sun after we checked out of our hotel. It was lovely actually, a lot calmer and less crowded than later in the day. We saw some canals we hadn't seen before and had lunch ...

... and things to do when we got there. We arrived just after 5pm and then made the short walk to our hostel which turned out to be a lot nicer than what we had expected. The first thing we noticed were the thousands of bikes going in all directions. The city has a great cycle path network and we could already see these were well used! The next thing we noticed were the 'Coffee shops' which of course do not sell coffee, but instead pot/marijuana/cannabis or whatever you wanna call ...

It is amaizing how many tiny homes and hotels that line the streets! The insides are also very small, and very tall. The stairs are quite the accident waiting to happen.
