Sorry for the long break between blog posts.  Our hostel in Amsterdam did not have free wifi.  Lyle and I are now settled into our Paris hotel and I now have a good opportunity to share our Amsterdam experiences.

When we first arrived we were amazed by how everyone bikes everywhere.  Seriously, everyone has a bike.

Bikes are everywhere in Amsterdam

After checking into the hostel, we visited the Heineken brewery.  This is our third and last brewery tour.

The next day we toured the Van Gogh Museum.  Unfortunately, no pictures were allowed inside.

We also went to the Rijkmuseum which is a Dutch museum and art gallery.  This contains several Rembrandt and Vermeer paintings.  Photos not allowed again.

For lunch, we had some classic dutch herring.  It didn’t taste that good, so we had a hotdog as well.

We meant to tour the Anne Frank museum, however the line was about two blocks long.  We never made it inside.  Instead we wondered around Amsterdam for a few hours before calling it a night.
