The jet lag has set in but the boys are doing really well. They arrived in Amsterdam yesterday and today we have had them out for 10 hours. Amsterdam is yet another change in geography, language, food, and cukture. We're all amazed at how many bicycles are parked everywhere around the city, how extensive the bike paths reach, and how many people are constantly whizzing past on their bikes.

I hadn't realised how influential the Netherlands were historically but have learned a little of that while here. The city is beautiful, ordered, and clean which is somewhat the antithesis of what I imagined with their famous red light district. People are friendly and fluent in English which is very helpful to us.

Tomorrow we depart for an overnight stay in Brussels. Strange how we're referring to London as home now...
