Spent the last week in April visiting a friend also American in Amsterdam. Here's how it went Flight from Detroit took about 8 hrs. Enjoyed all the movies you can watch now on long flights. They must of had about 20 to choose from, plus some TV shows -- all included in the price of your ticket. Takes about 15 mins for the plane to taxi to the Amsterdam terminal. De-planed about a.

Most of the travel advisory websites recommend using the ATMs to get euros. It's usually less-expensive than ordering euros from your bank in the US. American currency is not accepted in the Netherlands. Credit cards aren't either at many Dutch retailers. Met up with my friend who has been working in Amsterdam for three months.

When I woke up from my nap, it was a sunny Saturday afternoon in Amsterdam. Enjoyed walking the streets and seeing Vondelpark, where anything goes drinking, even public sex. Didn't see any of the latter, but there were was plenty of alcohol being consumed. There was a bachelorette party going on in the park and I was asked to pose in a picture with the bride-to-be.
Shortly after arriving in the Netherlands, I was struck by how tall the Dutch are. I knew the men were tall, but I didn't realize how tall the women were until I walked Amsterdam. There is no shortage of tall, skinny blonde women in Holland. They are everywhere! Not that I'm complaining. It's an interesting contrast that the Dutch tend to be so tall, yet the stores, restaurants, etc.
