Day 13 and 14 (Weekend)

On our last weekend in Netherlands I went to explore more of Amsterdam history and Gabriel – the night life of a city. That day was snowing quite heavily – scenery reminded me of my hometown in Lithuania.

I had met with my friends in Amsterdam and we took a stroll in a Chinatown, visited Buddhas temple. Photo above is old castle-like building, 500 years old, now a restaurant.

Also we saw one of the oldest wooden buildings in a city – i will post pictures above.

The origins of the city lie in the 12th century, when fishermen living along the banks of the River Amstel built a bridge across the waterway. The streets where we walked –  all  was flooded in the early days.

We stopped by at local pub to try some finest Dutch beer “La Chouffe” – i recommend it. Gabriel and I enjoyed our last weekend in Amsterdam – one more week to go!
