An Unexpected Adventure | June 20, 2009

So I woke up this morning and hustled my way down to the airport to catch my flight, only to be delayed due to “mechanical problems,” but to my surprise I wasn’t alone. One of my classmates was unexpectedly on the same flight. We waited for about 5 hours before they finally got the plane in working order and then off we were to Amsterdam. Problem was that both of us had missed our connections by then, but the airline was nice and gave us accommodations for the night, which left us with a few hours to explore the city.

Downtown Amsterdam is only about 15 minutes by train from the airport, so it was pretty convenient. Keep in mind that the only thing I really knew about Amsterdam was that it had really cool row houses and canals running through the city. As we walked around window shopping took on a whole new meaning. I realize the whole city’s not like the redlight district, much like there’s more to Las Vegas than the strip, but it was a whole different world compared to what I was used to. A fun afternoon at any rate.
