We returned to Amsterdam for a lovely and quiet 5 days. We stayed at Camp Zeeburg again, only this time it was too cold to camp so we stayed in a little wagonette. We pined after them the last time we were in Amsterdam so we thought we would stay in one this time around. It was a bit of culture shock being back to Amsterdam from Turkey and it was also chilly and rainy the whole time we were there. It was ironic though because right away out of the Centraal Station we were starving and our first stop was at a Turkish fast food place. It was like we didn't even realize what we were doing. We went in, saw falafel and Ayran, sat down and heard Turkish music and we just looked at each other like, "what are we doing?". We had just been complaining about eating turkish food for so long and now we're in Amsterdam, home to many cultures' foods and we eat turkish?? Well, it was delicious and afterwards we ate our long time craved Pomme Frites with tartar sauce. We also saw Michael Jackson's movie, "This is It" on Halloween.
