Well here is the proof.  We had a blast and Amsterdam is a great place to visit.

It looks like this everywhere. No garbage, no bums, no crime.



The only problem with the canals is parking.  Locals say they lose a car a week in the drink.  Notice the rear wheel. Thats parallel parking!



Another favorite form of transportation is the bike.  Mothers and fathers taking the kids around is an adventure.



Also if you have to go and your a guy there is convenient out door urinals.



And of course you cannot forget the "coffee shops".  If you really want coffee you go to a cafe.



And if your in a hurry there is a to-go solution.



Variety is the key and in fact hash is available.



And there is some magic around...



Finally there is the red light district.  I only had the nerve to take this photo... the locals said that it is not a good thing to photograph the "girls".  Funny thing is every time we went by the museum old people were coming and going.
 


Oh, and we did meet a few celebrities... This is my daughter Dylan.



Thanks for looking.

Dan.

Great place, I loved Dam Square, its unbelievable, the sex shop was next door to the butchers, it was like looking in a cave at stalagmites and stalagtites

We stayed at the Rho Hotel right in Dam Square.  We arrived on a Friday.  One thing is people in Amsterdam don't stop partying till the sun rises...
