We all met downstairs and headed to MediaMarkt (a Dutch Future Shop) where we bought phones and then continued to Ikea to get some needed accessories for our apartments. Of course, since we don't have a car, getting from Ikea back to the metro and then from the metro home with all of our stuff was exhausting and hilarious. This activity took up much of the day but when the group got back, Ross and I headed to the grocery store to get some food for dinner, we opted for chicken stir fry. It was delicious. Julia, Tamara, Chelsea and Allison came over for a little pre-drink and then we headed out for a night on the town. We took the tram to Leidseplein and then started to walk toward Rembrantplein, another square with some of the biggest, most famous clubs in Amsterdam. On our way we ran into two Dutch guys who insisted we were Canada's next top models, both the girls and Ross and myself. We went with them to Arc, which is known as one of the fanciest gay bars in Amsterdam. We hung there for a little bit, talked to the two guys, Rein and Martain and

then bid our farewell to continue to Rembrantplein. Once at Rembrantplein we went to a bar/disco called Three Sisters where the drink of choice became Jagermeister. Julia and I killed it with Ross buying us our last shot of the night. After Three Sisters, we walked to a frites stand (French fry stand) and they all got fries, we ran into another English speaking group and chatted for a while, then we came here and went to bed. Overall, a long day finished with an amazing night, tons of fun!
