Amsterdam!

Monday, February 2, 2009

I guess I never really mentionned this, but I flew out of London Saturday morning to visit my friends in Leiden, The Netherlands (close to Amsterdam). I'll be here eating Dutch food and taking pictures of windmills until February 9th, so don't expect a whole lot of posts between now and then, although, I will state the following:

  • The exchange rate between the Euro and the Pound sucks! It's basically 1-1, which sucks for me.
  • Leiden is a lovely little city - it's got all the best parts of Amsterdam without the drugs and sex.
  • I'm trying my best not to spend a lot of money, and have been really successful so far, wandering around and taking pictures is much much easier than visiting museums, unless, of course....
  • It's miserable and cold outside here. Very very cold. Colder than London (although, today London got a huge dump of snow and none of the trains are working! Ha!)
Anyways, I'm out to take some pictures. I'll try and post here and there during the week.
