    Yesterday morning, got up early and took a bike tour. I am really beginning to enjoy riding on bike again. So we rode around the streets and canals of the city getting more of a history lesson then seeing any real sites. Went over the "skinny bridge" wher a newly married couple with the bride still in her wedding gawn. Best of all we got to bike outside of town where we got to see a windmill, a cheese farm and a clog makers shop.

     It was amazing to see a big hunk of wood turned down to a shoe. It was done on a lathe much like when you have a key made by following a shoe. How about the size of wood that was needed for the shoes I was wearing. Also, I found out how cool and moist the shoe was after the clogmaker took the shoe off the lathe and handed it to me!

   The cheese farm, it really is pretty simple to make a keep cheese. It was nothing like a tour though a cheese plant I did back in school.

   After the tour I meet up with some of my travel companions from the Busabout and walked the Red Light District. It is just so odd seeing the women in the doors, where hundreds of  tourist walk by every hour. And it is almost comical, watching a man and a women striking a deal. FYI a session with these ladies is around 50 euros, and normally last you about 15 minutes. I did not partake! Live sex shows are around 30 euros, too much for me just to watch people having sex. Maybe next time I visit Amsterdam.

Today, I am heading back to Berlin, see you!!
