Where I stayed
Last night at Robert's house in Amsterdam
The bike lane/bike facilities are so functional here. There are bike lanes that are for the most part separated from cars on EVERY single road. There are separate signal lights at every intersection for cyclists and there are unlimited places to store your bike as well
Today was a rather easy day of strolling around the City and seeing the sights. We ran into Ryans friend (through Collin) Tom Everett who is also traveling Europe- a random run in on a random street- the world gets smaller every day! We went into a Gouda cheese store- "Gouda"is actually prounced something more like "how-da" with a hebrew sounding guttaral hock at the beginning. They have pesto cheese- its green- its amazing.
We decided that since Robert was such an excellent host, we would make him dinner. This turned out to be a bit difficult you see- Robert is vegan- what do you make a vegan for dinner? At the grocery store we had an even harder time finding vegan items as the ingredients for every product were in Dutch. We ended up making stir-fry over rice and had soy ice cream with fresh blackberries for dessert.
Tomorrow: meeting up with Ryan's friend Dustin for a bit- probably lunch- then off to Berlin!
