I'm putting together a photo album that will be a work in progress and I will keep updating it as I go to different places throughout The Netherlands. Here is a link if your interested in taking a look:
They were having a sand football tournament in Dam today, they actually built a temporary beach there for the national sand football teams to compete. I watched a little bit of the Hungary-Sweden match. I LOVED having a bike in Amsterdam, this was the first time I was able to bike through the city and it really let you get from here to there very quickly. I biked around the whole time I was there checking out different things and taking some pictures. I did not take too many pictures because it was not the nicest day out, it was cloudy and dark for the most part.
Finally I decided to come back home. On my way back, all that biking hit me at once and I got really tied. I think the worst part was having to be hunched over my bike the whole time. Since I have a mountain bike, the handlebars don't really go up any higher like the Dutch models do to make for comfortable riding. I still need to get a bike like the other Dutchies around here have from a junkie or some other place cheep :-) By the time I made it home, I was so tired that I plopped on the couch and didn't really move for about an hour. It was a nice ride though and I will defiantly do it again, maybe next time though I will take a bit of a break before I ride back home.
