PICTURES FROM AMSTERDAM

Here's some more pictures from my European Extraveganza. I took a 4 hour train from paris to amsterdam, hung out with my friend, "International Richard", in amsterdam for 3 1/2 hours and then took a 4 hour train back to paris. Perhaps not the greatest plan... but it was a plan nonetheless.

a pretty river runs through amsterdam... its probably called the amsterdamian river

there was a big carnival/fair thing at the square... good cheesy amsterdamian fun

its INTERNATIONAL RICHARD... drinking HEINEKIN, which is made by AMSTERDAMIANS


its me and INTERNATIONAL RICHARD... Richard used to work with me at DNA in texas. Now he lives in Amsterdamia, his birth place where he was born and birthed into the world... the world of amsterdam.

wierd hair lady

this statue attacked me for no reason

turns out that statue was part of an army of statues built to recreate one of renoirs famous paintings... um... I think it was renoir... my art history is a little rusty... mrs whatsherface would be really disapointed with me

this is the first and only subway in amsterdam... international richard said it was just recently built... built on the blood and sweat of amsterdamian workers

Sucks that you were only there for a short bit of time. Looks like a neat place to check out. That's sweet that you got to meet up with International Richard too!

It was awesome seeing you again Alex... hope you liked the short impression you had of Amsterdam!

Hopefully we'll meet again next year!
