Amsterdam

Well we've seen it all now

semi-overcast 17 °C

Hi everyone - we are having a great time - and our time in Holland has just about ended. We took a hop-on-hop-off canal cruise - which was fun, and went to a flea market, and checked out quite a few shopping strips. It took a while to get out and about as the thunderstorm that hit amsterdam - was pretty full on. Of course we checked out the RLD - and yes it is as amazing as everyone says - the smell of pot in the area is not something you could get used to back home - nor the smoking in restaurants.
Today we took a excursion to a windmill village, saw how clogs get made at shoe factory, went to edam area to a cheese factory - some very nice cheese - and another little village by a big lake called Marken, and took a cruise - and back to Amsterdam - all within 5 hours. From there it was off to the Heineken Brewery - which was fun, sean got to sample more than his share, since I'm not really the biggest beer fan. It wasn't quite "the guinness brewery" but it was still quite good. Found a really great steak restaurant for dinner so enjoyed some argentinian beef.
