Follow this link and check out pictures from my recent trip to Amsterdam. I was there for 3 very short days (August 18-20) and I can't wait to go back. If you ever get a chance to go there, DO IT.

One piece of advice, take your most comfortable shoes and practice your bike riding and when you get there watch out for those bicycles :-). And don't forget to check out the rest of my photo gallery.
