Ok, Did fine with bags, walked blocks and blocks in wrong direction looking for apartment, they don't do things with addresses like we do ha ha. Anyway found it, it is great, right on a canal, big open windows across room. It is over an art gallery and the owner lives upstairs. I have my own door to flat with 2 sets of double locks on each, unless superman wants to climb in a tree and swing in one of these windows, Im safe, and it is amazing. Boats are coming by all day and bicycles.I am the second from end of one of the streets covered with cafes and outdoor eating, which they have done all day. For me I tried the travel channel picnic meal and it worked. Went in the shop around the corner for sandwich and drink, walked until I found friut stand,,,ta da..lunch.

Lets see how much will I tell. Well you know the saying "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" enough said. I even walked alone through the red light district, one of the girls just waved and said hello. Just like we had run into each other shopping or something. I met a man that said I would be safe to walk through at night as it was covered in police at night. Well today me and about 3 old, old men were purusing the area ha ha ha haha.

Ok I bought one of those Amsterdam passes that gets me into all of the museums around here. So maybe I'll start that tomorrow. I am about 2 blocks from the Anne Frank house.

Love you all ,

When in Rome, eh?! lol
Hmmm, do tell?!?!?! What IS Beverly up to in that Roman city of Amsterdam? All kinds of devilish things to get into. Just remember, don't do anything that I wouldn't do & if you do - be sure to take lots of photos (okay, maybe that isn't a good idea... tee hee) & for sure give me the play by play.

I'm so jealousy. You're doing it... I am so thrilled for you & really loving reading about it & seeing all the photos...

MUWAH... aisha
