adventures in amsterdam...

jackie and i are back in oxford after our little adventure.

amsterdam is a pretty cool city...we walked around a lot (which did make our feet quite tired) and discovered that amsterdam has one of the largest bic
ycle populations on the planet. i really liked exploring all the little streets and canals...i think they were charming.

a few of the highlights were the anne frank house, where anne's family and four other jews hid from the nazi's; the keukenhof park (basically a botanical garden created just for tulips); and the really amazing waffle i had for dessert one day. it was covered in white chocolate and nuts, warmed up, and had a dollop of creme on top...divine. we also had a short, unintentional tour of the red light district...but that's a story for another day.

there will be many more pictures to come when i get them on flickr (which won't happen until i'm home), but here are a few to wet your whistle.
