Tim on the train ride from Schiphol airport into Amsterdam
I am tagging along with my husband to Amsterdam. His company has a presence at a big computer trade show, IBC, and I have had the pleasure of coming here with him several times before. Because of this opportunity, the city of Amsterdam has become a favorite destination. The people are gentle and friendly. I love the feel of the city, the mass transit, the ability to get lost and not feel afraid. I love to wander and do a lot of photography, people-watch, and dream.
We didn't do much today because neither of us have the ability to sleep well on a long flight. We checked into our hotel and lapsed into a jet-lag-fueled altered state. We should have stayed upright and pushed ourselves through this first day, but neither of us had the stomach for it.
This evening we ventured out for dinner with some other Newtek people. The rain stopped and we
had a leisurely walk through the city afterward.
one of the many beautiful canals in the city
we walked past this strange shop filled with crazy masks!
I must go back....
