Quick post that took awhile.

Uploading these took a while and I really should be packing to leave Brugge! We are at a crappy hostel filled with hormonal teens. But more about Brugge later, first, Amsterdam!

1-Thanks to Dani for telling us to stay in the Jordaan! So much nicer to wake up to what you see above than millions of sign declaring "english breakfast" and stores called "rasta baby"
I had thought of a bunch of other stuff to say, but if I want my watery free coffee I better go quick.


This Amsterdam cat is for Ed. C. I'm sure he's well aware that this city has great cats.
This was one of the best things we did, go to brouwerij t'ij in the old windmill. Their beer is delicious.


A keg of some delicious t'ij beer. They had an easter beer, which was pretty exciting.
Most people give you cheese and salami without bread. A little weird. But this was just as delicious as it looks. It was probably their plzen, one of my favorite beers ever on draught.

The kid in a candy store metaphor is so old. It's really all about Smiller at the Brouwerij. That is the picture of mindboggling elation if I've ever seen it before! Hey, man...I gotta ask about a Bananas show...now I know you can't wait to be back, huh?

Our houseboat is near Utrechtsestraat which seems off the tourist loop a bit. Hopefully it won't be too "rasta baby". I guess there is an amazing cheese shop near there. I am just excited to have a houseboat.

P.S. Armeniac, did you check in the secret drawer in the oven? Just a guess.

Poor, Smiller, he's missing the article on the dead in the times. I feel so sorry for him out there in Belgium, in the dead free zone.

Bob Weir looks hotter than expected. It's going to be so awesome when I make out with him. You know, when I am backstage at the Dead show.
