Our first full day in Amsterdam was jam-packed. We started out early (this on day 8 of 10) with a bus and walking tour around town. We hired a local guide for this part, and I felt really bad because a lot of us (including me) fell asleep. Some of our stops included a windmill still used as a house (sorry to the resident who had 40 Americans show up and start taking pictures), cloisters for single women, and lots of blooming flowers. We also made our stop at the Amsterdam sign. It was a chilly, rainy morning, so I treated myself to a hot chocolate from a stand near the sign.
