Where To Start?

It's been so long, and so much has happened. Paris alone...I don't think I'll be able to recount all of my adventures in a single blog post. I probably won't even be able to remember them when I get home, and will just casually mention in converstion "Oh when I was in Amsterdam we did so and so".
This weekend positively shot by. I just came back from a walk. It's been a wet sort of day, but don't want to look back on this trip and regret not taking a walk in the rain, so I went out. I explored the other side of the canal. It's nice, a lot of small shops and houses. Because I am a creeper, I love looking in windows, but seeing other people's houses all lit up and homey made me sad. I could hear people talking (in Dutch), and clattering dishes, and there were cooking smells, the whole thing made me feel like the little match girl, and the rain didn't help.
It seems like every shop in Amsterdam has a cat. It's nice, if slightly gross, to see the bakery cat, or the cheese shop cat, sitting in the window, sometimes on top of a wheel of cheese.
My friend Holdsworth turned me onto this, and it's like my new favorite thing. I want to tell everyone I know about it, it's just so good. Joss Whedon is amazing.
More later I guess. I thought I wanted to post, but I don't have much to say. Click that link and watch Dr. Horrible, it's totally worth it.

That is what pictures and your journal are help you remember the bits and pieces that are making your trip so great! YOu are right, you never remember it all but even remembering the smalls is a wonderful thing.

Such a charming vignette of your walk in the rain!
I sure hope you ARE keeping a journal AND that we will get to hear of more of your adventures one day.
