On Saturday, we got an early start and went into town to buy our tickets for our time here. Our host family made us a wonderful homemade meal! It was hands down the best meal I've had since I have been gone. After getting our tickets in town, we went into the Vincent van Gogh museum. Wow, it was amazing! We were there until the museum closed and I feel like I could have stayed longer! The information on his life was fascinating, not to mention seeing all of the paintings. Looking at a picture of a painting in a book cannot compare to seeing it in person. After leaving the van Gogh museum, we went out to dinner at a Dutch restaurant. I ordered Dutch meatballs -- they are coated in a special seasoning. I was skeptical at first, but they actually ended up being really good! I also had their famous apple tart dessert afterwards. It was truly the perfect Dutch meal. From dinner we went to the 'red light district', which is currently highly controversial in Amsterdam, as they continuously keep downsizing it. The rid light district is something I could never explain to someone else, you just have to see for yourself. Since this is such a big part of their culture, I felt I had to see it myself. In Amsterdam it is also legal to buy and sell pot. This definitely makes for a unique aroma when walking the streets of Amsterdam. From my time here, I'd have to say the people are not the slightest judgmental and are very accepting of others. Everyone is friendly, constantly going out of their way to help others. It's something I really enjoy being a part of while I'm visiting!
