... Yes. That’s all that matters.
I decided that, as it is so hot, my best bet would be to spend the day in places with air conditioning. I spent most of my day buying souvenirs for family in Amsterdam’s excellent shops. There are a few streets here that are lined with shops, and it’s better than any mall. In the afternoon, I ceased shopping long enough to grab some lunch and drop my purchases off at the hostel. I then took a ...
