so before i describe amsterdam, i dont want to forget the ryan air experience.
ryan air is this great budget air plane that has ridiculously cheap flights all over europe. i think each of our tickets cost about 20 bucks. not bad right? sure they are usually early in the morning, and land in not the exact city, but an hour or two away, but its still pretty cool.
since the tickets are so cheap they bombard you with advertisements during the flight. right as u sit down ur handed a magazine of stuff u can buy. after lift off they come around with a cart of pretty expensive snacks and drinks. then when your just about to drift of to sleep, they come around with scratch tickets. a little while later they have a cart of perfumes you can buy, and finally when ur just about to descend they come around with ryanair calendars availible for purchase. yikes! its quite the experience, even funny at times, unless your dead tired...
ok, so amsterdam- its still beautiful! we got into our really nice hostel- stayok. had a bit of trouble because i guess i only reserved one bed instead of 2, but it worked our allright in the end. we walked around amsterdam for a long while, went to a few of the markets, and i saw someone from the farm working at one of the stands, so we got together and had dinner out with him, very nice, a bit too spicey, but still nice.
he left, and kara and i walked around a bit, but eventually ended the night with a fabulous pub crawl!
the next day, we again walked around and went to a few more markets and then went to a bar with live music and chilled out a little bit. then the next day she left back for the usa.
so it sounds like we didnt do much, but there was a lot of walking, and i think we saw a lot!
so im staying here for an extra day or two, i might be getting a job as a pub crawl person, i have my interview in a little bit, who knows?! if not, then ill go back to the farm, then to paris- then home!
its so weird to think of going home, ive gotten really used to life in europe. hmmm...
