Amsterdam

 Amsterdam is crazy! 

You spend your first day marveling at the cities beauty while praying you don't die while on a bike. It only gets better from there!

by the 3rd day you welcome the thrill of death as a tram whizzes by you while you pedal between cars. Only 6 people per year die in a bike accident, but the statistics don't say how many of those people are tourists or tired of living. Still, you can only appreciate how incredibly low is once you've ridden here. 

 

I've got a bad case of bike seat butt, but I'm pedaling through the pain. A true hero.

The food here is really amazing. We haven't had a bad meal year and that includes a Mexican meal. I didn't expect much considering there doesn't seem to be a large Mexican population here, but they nailed my enchiladas mole. Why do we eat Mexican food in every country we visit? That Texan boy I married can't live without it :)

Most excitingly of all, our dear friends Erkki and Emma flew in from Sweden to meet us in Amsterdam. We met them a few years ago through our book, Stunning Digital Photography. Erkki reached out to us and we've become the best of friends since.

I also apologize that these post are written rather poorly. I'm writing from my phone and I tend to get lazy.
