Amsterdam is a trip

I didn’t think we could leave Paris for anywhere I would like as much but (again) I was wrong. We stayed at Mae’s B&B, you should do this too! (www.bedandbreakfastamsterdam.com) We felt immediately comfortable--comfortable enough to act pretty immature if you know what I mean. Larry King and mushrooms are a disturbing combination.

This is Ben ripping the streets of Herenstraat and all of us at the Hortus Botanicus butterfly reserve and remarkable garden arboretum. This is the home of the 300 year-old cycad and seed bank for all that palm oil now taking over Sumatra and penninsular Malaysia. If you look closely at the coffeeshop picture you can see someone having a toke of legal drugs, Amsterdam is visual enough without stimulation...


We turned our van back in to BW Campers. It was sad to see it go. Camping was a great way to move when we wanted to without reservations. And the van fit us well. The guys at BW Campers were great. I'd recommend them to anyone looking to rent a camper.

We fly to Goreme, Turkey today. We plan to be in Turkey for a month. Hopefully we'll shed our heavy clothing when we hit the coast there.
