After some homeless guy was driven out of the carriage by a couple of Austrian backpacker I ended up getting a pretty decent sleep. Arrived in Amsterdam late morning and was surprised at how beautiful the place was. After lots of people had told me it wasn't really that nice. I ended up in a hostel that was pretty seedy so moved onto a nicer place. Later that day I had a short look around the shops in the central area and decide to blow most of my remaining cash here.
The next day I checked out the Van Gogh Museum and it proved to be an inspirational visit. The were heaps of works from Van Gogh but also other from Cezzane, Monet, Gugain, Piccasso and many others. Later that night I went to the Movies to watch the new Austin Powers sequel.



The next day I headed down to the Anne frank museum, which included a walk through the various rooms and the secret annex. It was another thought provoking look into the troubles of the Nazi regime.
Later that night I ended up getting my tongue pierced which wasn't to bad at all. It just means that I had a swollen tongue and couldn't eat much for a couple of days.
I spent the rest of my time wandering around the various parts of Amsterdam and spending heaps of cash on new clothes. After a couple of days it was time to catch the bus to Brussels.
