Our first real day in Amsterdam is a real eye opener. Most challenging is dodging bicycles, motor scooters, pedestrians and cars. Just because you're on the sidewalk doesn't mean your safe. Pedestrians do not have the right of way.
We did a long walk to get our bearings and found Amsterdam is a difficult city to navigate around with just a city map. A compass is a good thing to have when the directions say go west and you are on a narrow streets and the buildings are so high you cannot get a bearing.
Never the less we managed to get our museum pass and see some sites. We were able to decide on our next days agenda and shade off the jet lag. Tomorrow we tackle some of the museums.
