Macklen's Euro Trip
This is quick. I\'m on an internet time limit!!! We\'re in Amsterdam...got in this evening around 5pm (friday) after about 3 hours on the London chunnel to Brussels and then 3 hours on an international train to Amsterdam. I got caught up on my scheduling, finances, and put all of my hostel addresses in my Garmin GPS unit!!! (thanks BRANDON!!!!!!! -- love you!) When we got to amsterdam I leaded all of us to our hostel...a tram ride and then a little hike to the place. it\'s great! a 6-bed room with a shower and a bathroom actually in the room - so we feel really fancy! we got showered and dressed to go find a some grub, found an italian place for some pizza and salad for about 10 euros and then made our way to the cutest and quietest pub around. it was hidden behind vines and there was almost no one in there when we entered around 9:30 pm. it is known for it\'s scotch and wiskey (which i didn\'t partake in--only wine, because i don\'t know much about scotch and wiskey) the walls were filled with wiskey cannisters. and the lamp shades were woven baskets turned upside down(if that makes sense) it was small and quiet...until about 10:30...we left shortly thereafter because it started to get smokey (cigarette smoke - not pot smoke...pot smoke is mostly outside, by the way...it\'s legal here if you didn\'t know...very funny!) so, we\'re on our way to bed, just wanted to quikly update because it\'s expensive for internet here. about $1.50 per hour for internet. tomorrow we go to musuems and then the next day to berlin. LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -mack.
