We spent three days in Amsterdam exploring, eating, and getting used to the time change. Our hotel was located just around the corner from the Rijks Museum which was very convenient. You can see the narrow stairs, but they were nothing compared to the ones inside! Then we learned our room was on the fourth floor, which in Europe is really the fifth floor as their system begins with the Ground Floor.
and down! Luckily there was an elevator, but even that was an experience. It held 3 people, two barely with luggage!
In Amsterdam most folks get around on bicycles, and as you can see, this one marks the spot of a nice little yarn shop called Penelope's. Every bit of the bike except the wheels was covered with knitting. Surprisingly, I didn't buy any yarn, but I did find some really cute buttons.
Flowers are everywhere in Amsterdam. These cheery sunflowers greeted us at the airport as we started our exciting days in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. More photos later, I promise! (Hope this isn't too disjoint as I am still pretty jet-lagged.)
