Where I stayed
When we arrived in Amsterdam and checked into our apartment we were greeted by our friend Sean. While visiting his girlfriend, Gwendo in Paris he made a side trip to meet us in Amsterdam. As the city prepared for the upcoming Queens day celebration we enjoyed our time in Amsterdam. Lots of good food, Ethiopian, Indonesian, and our favorite Falafel. Sean, Gwendo, and I rode on the Sky Swings. This was a swing carnival ride that rises way up in the air for a great flying ride. We all piled into the Farris Wheel for a night time view of the city. As the city was just starting to get ready for Queens day my arthritis did a big flare up. Since it was very painful to walk we decided it would be best to skip the massive crowds of Amsterdam and head off early to the slower pace of Brussels.
