Holland is neat. Very neat.
|This is the symbol for Amsterdam that you see all over the city.|
I was able to tour around a lot of different places in the Netherlands and was so lucky to have a local tour guide. First stop, Amsterdam.
I forced him to take all the touristy photos with me, in spite of his embarrassment of being Dutch and looking a bit dumb.
|Coffee, bikes, sunshine in the Netherlands.. I ask for nothing more.|
|The Anne Frank staute.|
This was one of my favorite things to see in Amsterdam.
Otto Frank (the father of Anne Frank) was the only one who made it back to his old home and hiding place after WW2 and found his daughters thoughts in the famous diary that was translated into the beautiful book.
He then also turned the house they spent their time in hiding into an exhibit for people to walk through. It was very humbling to see how close of quarters these people were living in during their hiding from the Jews. It had quotes of her life on the walls and very sad passages about feeling alone and isolated as a young girl. If you ever have free time in Amsterdam, I would recommend it.
