We joined a free tour of Amsterdam today to learn some history and see some sights. The city is so laid back in everything they do. There is no real thought that goes in to names. A church just around the corner from us is called New Church. This is because it was built after Old Church. It is the same with most names in the city.
At the end of the tour we joined the guide and some fellow tourists for a drink at a place called Boom Chicago. We got talking to a couple of young American girls working in Istanbul, Liz and Emily. They booked some tickets on the pub crawl for the following night and convinced us to come along. With twisted arms we agreed. It has not been since our early 20's that we've been on a crawl. Pretty sure that we've got it in us. The girls themselves were lovely. They are teaching English in Turkey and have great things to say about the country. Will definately add it to the list of places to go.
