Last fall I visited Amsterdam with Gabriel and my old friend and sometime traveling buddy Matthew. It is a beautiful city and a great one for walking, although I almost got run over by bicycles. What looked to me exactly like a sidewalk was in reality a bike highway and it was only by dint of furious handlebar bell ringing and shouts that I narrowly avoided being smashed several times. We mainly went to see the museums: the newly restored  Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum, and modern works at the Stedelijk. Photos will be in a future post, but here are some of my journal pages from the trip.

We also visited the Anne Frank House, which was very moving.
