The word we keep saying today is "charming." It's had such an impact on us that CF hopes to turn over a new leaf and make the C stand for charming instead of classy, we'll see. Amsterdam is amazing and we've hardly seen any of it. I'm sorry but Venice has nothing on this city. I think my Charming Fellow found us the Amsterdam equivalent to Greenwich Village Home (my favorite place to stay in NYC). Our apartment is up many flights of steep stairs, but we can use the exercise, I'm sure. We have the top floor (penthouse! woot!) all to ourselves. We're pretty sure that everything in here is from Ikea, but nicely done, not in a college student way. We finally have one big bed instead of two small ones, we have a couch, a table, plenty of space to move around... we even have a little kitchen and we've been to the grocery store and CF is cooking us dinner as I write this (green beans!). We walked along a canal to get to the store, passing at least 3 little cafes I would be more than happy to try, a dinner cruise went past us on our way back... it's just so charming here I can hardly stand it! But that won't stop me from trying. I have no idea what we'll be up to tomorrow. But right now I'm going to do a little laundry before opening the prosecco we bought to have with dinner.
