I don't know how I did it, but I forgot to write about Amsterdam!?!?!?

Last weekend the art class I am in here went on our third trip to Amsterdam. This trip was a overnight one where we arrived on Friday and left Sinday night, versus the previous two where we one went on day trips. Overall, the trip was great! We saw soooo many things that although I could see them on an individual trip, would never have known where or what they were, and their significance. My favorite sites were the Van Gogh museum, the Rembrandt museum, and this hidden Catholic church that was built inside a house. The two musuems had so many really amazing paintings and at the Rembrandt we had this audioguide, and it soudns strange, but it really made the museum great! It was done by an actor and his great voice and true love of the art made it really neat to see what the next painting would be.
Along with the more historical parts of Amsterdam we were also able enjoy some of the more famous, at least today parts of it. Everywhere we went there was the smell of pot, and although I did not participate in actively enjoying it the general sent was all around lol. There were also some hard working women of the night, but also the morning, and afternoon, right across from our hotel. They were very open to waving hello, and to all kinds of other things, although that was yet another task I did not participate it, prudish, I know haha. Well I should probably get back to studying :-/
