We arrived in Amsterdam yesterday afternoon. The city is very easy to navigate and charming sketchable scenery is everywhere. I was too groggy with jet lag to take many pictures and most of my focus was on crossing streets without getting in the way of a bicycle and not losing the humongous umbrella I borrowed from our hotel.

We did get caught in an afternoon downpour so clutching the umbrella all afternoon paid off. We visited the Van Gogh museum which has an amazing collection of his paintings and great explanations. I learned he only painted for 10 years!

Here are a few views from our dinner last night.
