Pluses and Minuses-Amsterdam
+ Sitting in Dam Square--Plaza with loads of people passing by in the middle of Amsterdam.
+ Crepe like pancakes.
+ Surrounded by junker bikes with expensive security chains
+ Flower Market Cheese Shops
+ Majestic train station
o Canals--some real nice, some ho hum an dirty
o Rigks Museum--In classic building, with some major old works of art (if you like classic 16th-17th paintings, as their modern art collection is poor)
- No parks near the crowded city center
- Hard to walk with narrow sidewalks (2" wide) lined with posts and chained bikes blocking whatever room there is to walk.
|Lots of Cheese Shops...|
|...and pancake houses serving pancakes that looked more like crepes|
