Beautiful Amsterdam

Although we only spent about 36 hours in Amsterdam, it was plenty of time for me. The city was beautiful, but it was cold, I was exhausted, and it's too tiny to get lost there (you can walk from one end of the city to the other in 30 minutes). The first day we almost got run down by bicyclists, saw the infamous red light district and went in the Anne Frank House. What a somber experience. You walk through the annex, and even see the bookcase that hid the entrance. That night I had the second best meal I had the entire trip. Amsterdam is known for its Indonesian food, which is like a mix of Thai and Indian cuisines - rice, coconut milk, saffron, tahini - it was just amazing. And the meal was topped off with fried bananas (I think I'm going to put my own spin on this with a nutella dipping sauce). The city is also known for their fries smothered in mayo and those were heavenly, too. I'm suspicious this might have something to do with the munchies, which of course, I would know nothing about during my time in Amsterdam (ha).
