so we got into amsterdam yesterday and it is super cold and windy... not exactly my favorite weather. we kinda laid low yesterday...hit a coffee shop, walked the city a bit, then took what was supposed to be a nap around 8...but lately our naps have been turning into early nights. seems like we party 2 days in a row...don't sleep much...then make it an early night the next day. nick luis and i were talking yesterday though...about how in the last week we've been to Antibes, Nice, Monaco, Paris, Brussels, and now Amsterdam. quite a busy week. and very different climates. so today nick and i took a free tour around amsterdam...learned some of the history, and got a better feel for the dutch. very laid back people who, throughout history have been very tolerant of difference people and cultures. tomorrow will be the van gogh museum, maybe the heiniken (sp) factory, and just more chillin in the shops. i might hit up the wax museum tonight, we'll see. nick and i were just talking...and right now we're toying with the idea of axing italy all together....going to crotia, budapest, finland, bulgaria, interlock in switzerland...just a bunch of eastern european countries...much cheaper...and not overcrowded with tourists. everyone we've been running into said italy is just so crazy right now...and it's not even july yet. so not sure what we're gonna do yet...but just a interesting idea right now. well that's it, ttyl
