Day 2 - Amsterdam

We enjoyed another fun-filled (if sometimes rainy) day in Amsterdam. We began the day by visiting the Anne Frank House (pictured above). There we got to experience the living conditions faced by Anne and her family for the two years that they hid in the secret annex before they were discovered by the Nazis.

The group then took some time to explore central Amsterdam around Dam Square, enjoying the sights and sounds while getting finding some lunch. We then spent that afternoon at the Jewish Historical Museum learning about the deep history of the Jewish community in Amsterdam. We finished the afternoon with some food and fun at the Hard Rock Cafe. Tomorrow we leave Amsterdam behind and make our way into Belgium and France.
