Amsterdam – Day 2 (first half)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here are a few pics from day 2 in Amsterdam.  It was a cloudy day, so we decided to visit several indoor venues.  We chose the Van Gogh Museum, where I couldn’t take any pictures, but we certainly admired many amazing works of art.

Super-mini car in Amsterdam

On our way to our first destination I was immediately impressed by the wonderful variety of modes of transportation that we saw throughout the city.  We saw folks of all ages, sizes and fashion statements riding bicycles.   Then we saw cars like this little red one, that could fit in the tiniest sliver of a parking spot and the 3 little boys in the attachment to their mothers bicycle in the slideshow.  What would you call that?  It’s not really a sidecar, since it’s in the front.

Mid-day we visited the Heineken Experience and toured what was once a working brewery to learn about the history of the company and the beer.  It was quite interesting.  Not being big beer drinkers and the fact that it was relatively early in the day, we weren’t able to finish all 3 of the free beers that we each could have had.  Just as well since we had a lot more ground to cover that day and we didn’t want to miss anything while being in a drunken stupor.
