The capital of Netherlands . Aproximately 800 000 people . The city is small . I spent 5 days , with my friend Sergio .  Madrid – Amsterdam return . It was short trip . The weather was cold and rainy . Most of the people go around by bicycle .

We rode a bicycle , to explore the parks . There are many bicycle ways . People respect the bicycles , totally  different to Spain  . We went  around the canals . There are many bars , where you can stop to have a beer . Beers taste so good and they have variety .

There was time to visit museums . Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum . They are very big . Both of them are really nice . Prices are expensive in Amsterdam . Entrance for museums , bars , acommodation , transportation … Its very expensive Amsterdam !

We visited the Botanic Garden , after a long bicycle ride . We stopped in this nice place . In Amsterdam , its very typical flowers to find in Amsterdam . There is a market , where you can find a lot of them .

At night , we visited Red Light District and Coffeeshops . Its very crowded . Amsterdam is very easy to go around , by bicycle , even walking , if not you can get the tramway .

In the mornings , walking around the city . Taking pictures and stopping for a beer . A curious thing in Amsterdam ! They dont use curtains . They like to have as much light as they can . There are people living inside the boats in  the canals . Its great Amsterdam !

We took a cruise by the canals . Its not big deal . But it was included in the Amsterdam card , which  is worthy , if you wanna visit different tourist places .

My nutrition  was based in street food . The best I found quality-price was Febo . You can find 24 hours day . Also hamburguers , french frites  and hot dogs . Chinese places also you can get cheap food .

Visited Amsterdam some years ago and did the whole Van Gogh thing. Loved walking around the canals on a Sunday morning when it was quiet, photographing the houses and the houseboats.
