Today I woke up at 7:15, had breakfast at 8:45, and then we left at nine to go into town. The canal bikes were cancelled, so the first thing I did was take a tour of the Anne Frank House. It was really interesting, and I'm glad I did it.

After the Anne Frank House, I just kind of wandered around for a while. I got ice cream (half caramel, half "cookies") and ended up going to a Van Gogh exhibit. It wasn't the actual Van Gogh museum, but it was a little tour with reproductions of his paintings, and some of them were in 3D. It was kind of weird, but at least I got my Van Gogh fix without having to walk all the way to the museum.

By the time I got out of the Van Gogh place, I didn't really have time to go anywhere else and I wasn't hungry enough to buy food, so I just sat down and enjoyed the scenery and talked to a French guy named Adam for a while. Then at 3:15, we got on the coach to go back to the hotel.

We had a little bit of time at the hotel, and then at 4:45, we left again to go back out. The people doing the canal cruise got dropped off for that, and then those of us not going (me, Serena H., and Michelle) just killed time. We found a restaurant where they got drinks and we just talked and stuff, and then we went over to the Sea Palace where we met up with the rest of our group for dinner.

Dinner was Asian food with very small portions (and it didn't help that they kept grabbing our plates before we were done). We had two free drinks with dinner, and I don't drink, so I gave mine to Jerry since he only had like €9 to get him through the rest of the tour, haha. Most people went out after dinner since it was our last night all together on the tour. I didn't, though. I went to bed early and slept until my inconsiderate roommate brought a guy home into the bunk right above me. -_-
