Amsterdam, Netherlands

Today may have been the most fun we've had. Woke up, had a great breakfast (Kelly loved the ham and cheese sandwiches) and set out for the rijksmuseum. It was fabulous, even though it was in renovation. The Rembrant's were spectacular. We then visited the Van Gogh museum, it too was splendid.

Then,we stopped for lunch, and that's where the excitement really started.

After ordering, Jerry went to the bathroom. When he returned and pulled out the chair, he startled a cat, who promptly bit and clawed, thankfully only at his jeans! It gave all in the restaurant a start, and Jerry swears it was a bobcat or mountain lion, but all is well, and everyone has their limbs.

We visited the red light district, did some shopping and had a great time riding the canal bus throughout the city. This was our only full day here, and we made the most of it, we had a lot of fun.

We'll do a little more exploring tomorrow, then its on to Maastricht to see Stu and his place of study (?). We'll be back in touch tomorrow.

You guys are having way too much fun! I love the Netherlands, that is where my family comes from and it is so beautiful there. Tell Liz that The Gazette is falling apart without her but not to worry. :)
