day two here in amsterdam and i had to duck in here for a doppio espresso to ease the pain in my head. another beautiful day here. woke up late(noon) today, as expected, and walked over to the rijksmuseum, which probably houses the second most impressive collection of art in europe(the louvre probably being tops, though i personally have not been there yet…just read that tidbit in my time out guide). followed that with a quick snack at a cafe in the museumplein, where i got the punks to try some sushi. the van gogh museum was way too crowded, so we’ll try again either tomorrow or monday. we then walked down the leidsestraat(major shopping street, but construction is going on there, so it wasn’t too pretty), to the city centre, where we just came from the ‘sex museum’. very educational, though the boys got yelled at by the old dude that runs the place for loitering around the homosexual, sado-masochistic/bondage display far too long.
