Our Lady and Sheen

Thought i was exhausted before

Today I arrived in Amsterdam at 830 local time. I’ve been up since 2pm local time yesterday. It is now nearly 900pm. I hate not being able to sleep on planes, although the movies were good.

The first thing I did after I found myAmsterdam host was head to the Starbucks in AMS, payment to my host. We then literally ran to catch the train to Amsterdam Centraal, traveling in flip flops wasn’t a good idea! I learned how to catch the bus and tram on the way to my host’s house, washed my face, and was out the door to walk to a bike rental place by 10am. After a couple hours, my host left me to explore on my own, which I did. I returned the bike and walked about 5 miles finding stuff. I managed to also take a sightseeing boat just after I ate my first Dutch pancake, which is like a paper thin version of the American version. I also had a doner kabob, Wichita had lots of foods on it, but I managed to eat it and it was good.

Amsterdam seems to have lost it’s religion a bit. There were about a dozen big beautiful churches, all seeming to have art galleries instead of the Lord.

I ache and keep dozing off writing this, but it’s been so worth it. I’ll write more late.
