Where I stayed
Britt and I spent another day wandering around London. First a boat cruise down the Thames River, then we checked into our first Contiki hotel, the Imperial Hotel in Russell Square. Then we did a quick walk around the British Museum... where Britt broke her camera (read about that on her page). Then we took a ride on the London Eye which is a 135 metres tall ferris wheel thing in the heart of London where you get awesome views of the beautiful London skyline. We ended up having to run to get to our first Contiki meeting (which was essentially pointless anyways), then sat in a little park and had sausage rolls and wine for dinner. Finally, we took the Underground 'tube' back into the more central part of London to see some of the buildings at night. It was beautiful!!! We went to bed early so that we would be bright eyed and bushy taled for our early morning bus ride to Amsterdam
We rode the bus to a ferry into France, drove through Belgium and arrived in Amsterdam early evening. And, within a short amount of time we were essentially thrown into the culture of this strange city. I think this city was an experiment devised by aliens to see how humans would handle it. We walked through the 'Red Light District' full of pubs, sex shops, coffee shops (which do not sell coffee, a rather interesting 'herb' instead), and prostitutes on display through windows to our final destination... a "cultural show"... or more realistically titled a sex show. You know how if you go to a dolphin show, you expect to see dolphins??? Well you can imagine what you would see at a sex show...quite the ice breaking entertainment for all those we had just been introduced to on our tour. Anyways, I have to go now... we have a canal cruise now!! Byebye, miss you all!!
