Arriving in Amsterdam

Leaving Seattle mid-afternoon on a Thursday and losing nearly a day to the flight and the time difference I arrive in Amsterdam very early on Friday morning. The flight took a polar route, going over northern Canada, Greenland, and Iceland in the night. At dawn I flew over the Great Britain.

The first day in Amsterdam consisted of a visit to the Rijksmuseum, pancakes, cheeses, fries,  and a lot of coffee. The city is made up of so many beautiful canals that it was challenging not to stop and take a picture when crossing every one.
