On our last day in Holland, we biked around. The Dutch love biking as much as the Chinese. Amsterdam is a beautiful collection of small shops, cafes, restaurants, and museums. We saw Anne Frank's house, which has inspired Jill to read Anne Frank's diary. We also went to the Van Gogh museum. This guy could paint and you don't need the local hashish to appreciate his work. In the evening we ate at our favorite Amsterdam restaurant, Foodism. So far, we've been able to use English for everything. However, in the spirit of good tourism we learned some Dutch, such as hoi (hi), lekker (delicious), bedrankt (thanks), and tot ziens (goodbye). With these four words we've been able to get by in most restaurants and the red light district. 
Really, there are windmills in Holland
