Journal Entry:
My first day in Amsterdam was spent like a local. On a bike. Rob and I rode all over Amsterdam, and even took the ferry to North Amsterdam. Amsterdam was meant to be seen on bike, there are no hills, and every major street has a seperate bike lane.

Spent the afternoon watching Alien 4: The Reserection. OVer all I4d say it was pretty good, at least I never checked my watch!

Went to a diner party at Rob and Natsuko's friend, Isabel. It was a lot of fun, everyone brought a dish from thier home country. It was quite an international crowd (Netherlands, USA, Mexico, Japan, China, Ecuador, and Hungry). The food and company were excellent.
