Amsterdam - Day One

In her hometown visiting her mom, brother and friends, Dutch girl extraordinnaire, Maddie, came crashing out of our hotel to greet Louise and me for the first of several do everything tour days in Amsterdam.

Fun Dutch seatmates  on the flight to Holland, Anton and Ali. We reviewed what it's like to grow up there, health care, education, the history and the great party tonight at Paradiso - stop on by, they'll be there 'til 8am.

We spent ten minutes in our hotel room and raced outside for a walk to the train station to see the tulips. Come to think of it, I don't think we ever spent more than ten minutes awake in our hotel rooms, it was go, go, go, shower, bed, go, go, go!
First stop, the "I Amsterdam" photo stop, followed by omelettes at an outdoor cafe on a sunny, cool, gorgeous day in Holland. Bikes are everywhere,
pedestrians need to be careful because they will definitely run you over! Here's a three story parking garage outside the train station with wall-to-wall bikes jammed together.
