We arrived in Amsterdam today. Haven't done much, but we did eat a wonderful dinner at this little restaurant just around the corner. We had pollack, lobster bisque, and Randy had an apple tart for dessert. We are getting a little tired now....I think we'll be ready to come home, even though we are having a wonderful time.

Tomorrow we are going to meet the author of On The Tracks of 007, who wrote a book about all the James Bond movie locations. Should be fun to have dinner with him, he's fresh off a holiday where he got to be at a banquet honoring Sir Roger Moore.

Ok, we're back now, it's Tuesday, October 28th. We've had a full day today. We slept in until about 8:30 (woo hoo), then ate breakfast and set off for the Hard Rock Cafe. Randy hit pay dirt with a Halloween pin, and we met some really nice staff members. He bought several other pins, then we had lunch, where he traded pins with a waiter from Portland, OR named TJ. Kinda looked like the PMI TJ, bald head and all. He even had a Hard Rock staff pin made especially of him, Randy can tell you about that when we get home.

It was some cold today, and it rained a lot. Thank goodness we brought umbrellas with us. We spent the afternoon at the Vincent Van Gogh museum. If you are ever in Amsterdam, we highly recommend it, it was great.

Wish we could spend more time here, but tomorrow it's off to Paris, then home. See you then~
