Exploring Amsterdam

Ivan, Jennifer and I went to The Amstelkring Museum on October 22, 2009.  In 1663, this place was a secret church.  At that time, Catholics weren’t allowed to practice their religion in public.  A lady from the tour last night told us about this church. The church is located in the attic. We didn’t think it would be so big. It has an organ, lots of artwork and religious things inside. Next, we went to the Anne Frank House.  Luckily, there was only a short line – so we didn’t have to wait very long to get in.  Ivan and…

Fun Bike Tour

Ivan, Jennifer and I checked out of the Alcatraz Hostel on October 19, 2009.  We stored our luggage in the storage area.  We took the train to Alexandraplatz.  We met up with the Fat Tire Bike Tours. Our guide was an Australian guy named Randall who was hilarious. One of our stops was Checkpoint Charlie.  We also saw where Hitler’s bunker is located.  It’s actually a parking lot right now.  But, the bunker is still below. There was the last watch tower in Berlin.  Of course, we saw the Berlin Wall. They have a fence around it, so people don’t…

At night, we met up at the Yesterday Bar for the 666 Anti Pub Crawl.  The bar had some great decor.  Our guide was an American lady with dreadlocks.  We waited a few minutes in the bar to wait for other people to arrive.

Colosseum

Ivan, Jennifer and I ate some tasty sandwiches from a local cafe on October 10, 2009. We went to the Colosseum.  We bought tickets for the guided tour.  It’s a much shorter line and only costs a few Euros extra. We met up with the group and our guide.  The guide was Italian.  She told us about the Colosseum. The Colosseum is nice, but it’s mostly in ruins.  It is amazing to imagine how big and beautiful it once was. Plus, it would have been cool to see the grand events that were held in the Colosseum. We walked around…

The guy drove really fast.  He wasn’t sure where it was…
