Do You Like My New Earrings?
While traveling to Iran, I had to change planes in Amsterdam
. There was an extended stopover, so, in looking for something to occupy my time, I found that you can take short (2 hour) tours of the city and see a see a little of the countryside in the process. I know that I could have taken the subway into the city, but didn't want to chance missing my flight (having to go through customs and security twice). On the tour, you get to see some of the major city sites (if only from the van), but also see how wooden shoes and cheese (the raw materials coming from cow the above photo).
