    We spend our first day in Amsterdam exploring the city. We began at the Rijksmuseum where we learnt about Dutch history and art. Babur and I spent a good deal reading through the exhibits but Omar and Richard seemed a little bit more interested at the weapons on display. We got some asparagus-deficient lunch nearby and did a bit of souvenir shopping. Then we visited the Van Gogh museum, learnt about his life and shopped in the gift store. Omar was feeling a little ill (caught the flu) so we dropped him at the hotel to rest while Babur, Richard and I went to the centre of the city to grab some pizza for dinner. Overall a great day in the city.

    Hello! Yesterday was an eventful day. We woke up early to rent bikes from the hotel. Renting bikes was an excellent idea, since you get a much better feel of the city if you ride through it on a bike rather than taking the tram. We rode to the Portuguese synagogue which was unfortunately closed so we only took pictures of the outside. Then we walked to a nearby market where we spent a long time shopping for souvenirs. After eating lunch we walked back through the streets in search of more souvenirs. The streets are vibrant, with small blocks of apartments and stored made of red bricks lining the streets. We cycled back to the hotel to drop of all the clothing and other souvenirs that we bought. We decided to spend the last few hours at the hotel, where we ate dinner and began with packing our bags for a train ride that did not take place.
