I Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

For some reason this blog site won't let me post my pictures, so here is the beginning of my blog with no pics.
We have spent the last few days exploring Amsterdam. It is an interesting city. Everyone is friendly and everyone rides a bicycle.
We went to the Heineken Experience and we saw how they make beer. And then, we got to be the beer. That sounds weird but that is what you do there. We also got to taste test lots of beer.
I tried croquettes at lunch because you should try the food the locals eat. That is why I had Cod Tongue in Newfoundland. It is also why I wanted to eat puffin in Iceland.
We went to the Van Gogh museum. There were lots of brilliant paintings. Van Gogh painted lots of paintings but he passed away when he was very young. I think that was in 1890.
Near the Van Gogh museum, there were giant letters that spell, "I Amsterdam".
I really liked the Canal boat tour we went on. We saw lots of beautiful buildings and there are some really cool House boats all along the canals.
Our hotel room, which is kind of like a little apartment, looks out over one of the canals. We can see House boats out our window. We are up on the third floor and there is not an elevator, only Harry Potter steps. It was hard to get our suitcases upstairs, especially the big one.
As I am writing this blog, me and Dad are having another Heineken experience but not Mom, because she is a wheat-whiner.
Tomorrow, Greece.
