Mmm another dounaffle to start the day :)

Walked around the local flea market thing. Saw Dam square. Fun music concert at the square playing up beat music.

Returned bikes. No crashes or collisions.

Success. Annie and Ari walked to Magere brug aka skinny bridge aka "disappointment bridge" (as we called it). Supposed to be a unique and awesome bridge over the canal that a lot of people take wedding photos on - probably similar to the blue bridge in Grand Rapids.
But we were unimpressed. Enjoyed the sunny walk home.

Got ready and went on a lovely romantic Canal cruise after dinner. Pretty incredible seeing the city via boat. And learning some new facts about Amsterdam :) Example: much of the "new" part of the city was built on land created my man due to the lack if space in the city. Also, although boat houses were originally cheaper and used to give more residential opportunities in the city, they are now a commodity because the officials are no longer granting permits.

Had another night out on the town.

1. Bring your own bag at groceries- gets annoying when you forget a bag, either gotta buy a new one or carry everything.
2. Some of the freshest squeezed juices in Europe. Yum.
3. A friend of ours was explaining that his friend has tripped a lot while in Europe. He meant to say that he "sucks at walking in Europe" but it came out as "he sucks at Europe." Annie: did you just tell someone "You suck at Europe"? Becca: like, using Europe as a verb? It's now our catchphrase.
