... interesting. The trip along the Canal was, itself, colorful and interesting. The countryside was lovely with roads that went along the canal. It was notable that there was not much auto traffic compared with what one sees in the US. Also, I noted that here and there were people sitting or standing in the green growth along the roadway near the canal just looking out at our passing ship. Some were camped out ...

They'd fitted the part they'd ...
... District. (All we did was walk through this section, it was safe, and was just a cultural experience of Amsterdam.) Background: in Amsterdam, prostitution is legal, and this is the "district" illuminated with red lights, that is a pretty big nightspot for tourists. (That's all I'm going to say, but you can do your own research about this area of Amsterdam culture.) Shortly through our walkthrough, we went back to the hostel to get some much needed sleep. ...
