I took the train up there yesterday. I try to get there every few months and I'm thinking I need to get there a few more times before I move. It was a beautiful, sunny day. A little chilly, especially closer to the water, and windy but otherwise gorgeous! It rains about 90% of the time when I go to Amsterdam so it was nice to have a dry day.
I visited the The Resistance Museum; something I've wanted to check out for a while but none of my visitors has been interested so I had to wait for a solo trip. I'm really glad I finally made it. I walked to several parts of the city I haven't seen before (and that's one of the reasons I love the city...you can see something new every time you go). Here's a very small taste of yesterday's visit.

|The Anne Frank house is not on Anne Frankstraat (Anne Frank Street). It's not even in the same part of town. I didn't know there was an Anne Frank Street until I was looking at the map to walk from the Resistance Museum to the Science Center.|

I amsterdam (the title of this post) is a tourism campaign put on by the city. There are "I amsterdam" signs and sculptures all over the city. Here's the family at the one in front of the Rijks Museum when they visited last May.
