Dear Blog....LOL,

It seems to be harder than I thought to keep this Blog up, as we seem to have no time or desire to sit in our hotel room typing versus out exploring or eating or finally back in our room sleeping. So It will likely be a little sporadic. I know how sporadic, as it is the 28th today that I am filling it in on. We had finished up at Keukenhoff and caught the bus back to the airport, where we switched over to the train to Centraal station. We stumbled out of there and worked our way into the core of Amsterdam where we explored one shop after another and ended up in a great cheese shop and finally after sampling all of the cheeses we walked out with an aged sheep cheese. We explored everything from clothing to sex shops and a very kinky fetish shop as well. We decided on a canal cruise for an hour and travelled around the inner harbour and up several canals before ending back in front of Centraal station. So we caught a tram out where we thought we should be going and were we ever wrong....LOL. Jumped off way out on the East end of Amsterdam and caught it back into town for about 4 stops where we made a connection on a second tram heading due West. Got off just shy of the Museum district and walked towards the Ryjks Museum. We have been incredibly lucky weather wise, other than it being a bit cool we have not been rained on yet. A lot of blue sky and beautiful times.
