On Sat night we went to the Paradiso club which was off the hook!! There were 3 DJ's group spinning all hip hop
As you will see in the video, I challenged a little kid from Virginia to a popping contest. The Amsterdam air got to me, hahahaa!
We did go to the Van Gough and Anne Frank musuems as well which were both interesting. I couldn't belive that we were acutally in the attic where Anne Frank, her family, and family friends hid for 2 years. It was erie.
Sorry guys, we tried to get pics of the red light district (which supposedly is strictly prohibited) but they didn't come out. It's really crazy down there though -- it's like walking through a zoo. The women are really in the windows on display under a red light. Some of them are text messaging or filing thier nails, not at all intersted in what's going on, while others are posing intently.
The most impressive part of the city, however, is the architecture. Amsterdam is beautiful! It's a great place to come and chill -- go for a bike or canal ride.
Dionne met many of her kindred here (hehe)...our hotel staff and one of the taxi drivers kept making reference to her and life in Africa. I don't know...maybe it's the braids.
Anyway, it's rainy and chilly today...time to move on.
