Well, this town is nothing like what I expected! We got into our hostel from the airport pretty late, but we wanted to go out and see a bit of the nightlife.  We were staying in the Leidseplein area, and there were tons of bars open at that time of the night.  We were impressed with how friendly the locals were, and how well everyone spoke English.  We met a few people that were doing after work happy hours, and ended up talking till late in the evening.  The next day we wandered around looking at all the sights, including the sex museum, and basically waiting for night time.  Once it got dark it was time to have some fun Amsterdam style.  We headed to the red-light district, and wandered around checking out the wares in the windows, and finally decided to go see one of the live shows.  Very interesting….  Later on we decided to go check out one of the infamous coffee shops.  I’d never had coffee that made me that hungry before…lots of fun!

We slept late, and then the next day headed to the train station to head over to Paris.
