What a fun filled vacation we're having! Mark and I took off by ourselves (Cari making sure we could handle this...) and we walked around town trying to get the lay of the land. We had lunch outside (I show a shot of the cafe in one of the pictures below) next to a canal and it was a lovely, relaxing lunch. I had a mozzarella and tomato sandwich and some sparkling water. We sat next to a French family with several children and we got a kick out of the kids running back and forth, just having a good time. We then walked to the Heineken Experience (oh, one of Cari's friends told us the big yellow tubes we'd been seeing used to be women's bathrooms....) and took a tour. We did learn a lot about beer, but of course it was all about tourists and of course we took pictures. We were so 'Dutch': see the one photo. At the end of the tour you get two beers and as you sit in the 'bar' they show pictures from around the world. One of the pictures below is for Kseniya. Then we walked back to Cari's place, and noticed that some of the neighborhood children had used chalk to decorate a statue of some bears: loved it! Then we took off with Cari on our bikes and went out for Ethopian food. So good!
