I had a good time in Amsterdam. And I didn't do any activities that are legal there, but are illegal here.
Amsterdam, to me, is a great city for just setting out on foot and walking. I always seem to discover that I haven't seen before. Like the photo above.
This is the house that John Adams lived in as while he was the first US Ambassador to the Netherlands. I was looking for the Photography Museum, and just stumbled upon the house from nowhere. I didn't go in -- I don't think it was open to tourists, but it was cool just to find it from nowhere.
Now one of the more disappointing aspects of my trip was my visit to the Heineken Experience at the very first Heineken Brewery. Talk about ripping off your money. Sure, I got two free Heineken's out of the experience, and got to play bartender, but still, I expected more for the money.
You see a lot of old Heineken commercials. You learn about the history. They put you on one of those interactive ride things that makes you part of the brewing/bottling process. And you come out into the Heineken store.
Besides playing bartender, I guess the best part was that I got to buy a bottle of Heineken with my name on it. So I've got that going for me, I guess.
I'll try to write more later, today. But I've got a bunch of errands to get done before I head out to Copenhagen tomorrow afternoon.
