Everywhere you look, there are flowers just growing everywhere. Take this picture fro example, this is just some random patch of grass by the railroad tracks, yet it is filled with flowers. It's pretty cool how they just come up everywhere almost like weeds.
Some flowers have already come and gone at this point believe it or not. For example I had a picture on this blog earlier with purple and white flowers along the canal, those are already gone.
When I got home it was still too nice to stay inside so I read a couple chapters of a book that I am reading outside. I am reading "De Gouden Sleutel" Het verhaal van een heel kleine reus. It is my first Dutch book that I am reading that is not a children's picture book, and so far it is going good. It has about 120 pages of text and is for older kids. And even though it is a kids book, I am actually enjoying the story! Haha.
It stayed light today until about 8:20! So cool, I can't wait until it lasts till 10:45ish around the end of June. :-)

That night, Justin, Shawn, and I had a few drinks and went to the Haarlem Red Light District. I saw the hottest (and nicest) prostitute I ever saw! She was very attractive and she was actually talking to us through the window.
Saturday I took them to Amsterdam and I took my first canal boat cruise. It was nice but nothing all that great; they seamed to like it a lot so that is good. The rest of the day was spent shopping and walking around.
Saturday night I took them out in Haarlem with Kris and Erik. Was a great time as usual and then we introduced them to Shwarma...love at first bite of course!
Sunday we went to the beach and somehow I lost my camera! I am so pissed! After the beach We went to Sumo for all you can eat Sushi, they liked this as well.
Monday we were back in Amsterdam. I brought my bike on the train and they rented some. They went to Anne Frank and while they were there, I went to a market I've been wanting to see, it was not at all what I was expecting...it was really big but not that great at all. They like Anne Frank so that is good at least. Next we had Dutch pancakes, they loved those. Megan does not even like pancakes and she was crazy about them. After that we went to Heineken Experience. Still like this one.
That night I went to Dutch class while they were getting ready for Paris the next day. Tuesday and Wednesday I worked while they were in Paris.
I was glad they came and had a good time with them. It also provided a nice (and much needed) break from work. So thanks for coming guys, and I hope to have some more visitors soon.
