In downtown Amsterdam there were several beautiful buildings and streets of narrow buildings, some with severe tilting. Apparently the buildings are sitting on piles driven into the mud and sometimes the piles sink, causing strange effects to the homes.
After the tour was finished several of the group decided to stay downtown and sightsee. On the sidewalks and in the square there were strangely dressed figures for entertainment, and money. Nearby, was Amsterdam's famous red light district and narrow canals. In places it's almost like Venice.
Too soon, it was back to the hotel, and prepare for Saturday's return home.
