I arrived in Amsterdam late on Saturday night. I checked in to my room and went to sleep to get rested for seven days of Amsterdam touring!
On Sunday morning, I woke up and met up with a local! He showed me around the city and gave me an overview of the history of the city, and we went to a few of the main tourist attractions (Dam square, Red Light district, Central Station). Amsterdam is beautiful!
After walking around with my backpack, I was ready to settle in to my next place. I met my host at a cafe, then we dropped my stuff off and headed to dinner at Coffee and Coconuts.
Just my kind of place!
We had a vegan feast! We ordered a vegetable and hummus plate, a fresh Lebanese salad, and a sweet potato masala. We could barely eat it all!
The next day, I did some touring on my own. I headed toward the museum square, and detoured toward the market.
Passed by a promise of baskets of steamy goodness… I’ll have to go back there.
I met all my tourist friends at the museum square.
Then just wandered through the city.
I stopped at Starbucks to get directions home from Googlemaps, and by the time I left, the sun had set and I got to experience Amsterdam by night.
It’s been a great time in Amsterdam so far!
