Jennifer and I spent five days in Amsterdam. One day was spent in the Rijksmuseum viewing (more) masterpieces of the Dutch Golden Age, and another at the wonderful Van Gogh Museum. The rest of our time was spent wandering about central Amstedam.

On our final day in Amsterdam, we got a chance to rent bikes and cycle into the countryside. We got caught by one downpour, but it was otherwise a beautiful day. It was like riding in a 17th century Dutch painting (allowing for some signs of modernity like power lines, cranes and modern windmills).
