Basically I only had a layover in Amsterdam and wanted to see the canals so I did. They were not that impressive when compared to Venice. The architecture was bland but unique to the Netherlands so I am glad i went. Mission accomplished.

Great to hear your feedback. glad we could show you a bit of the city before you took off again. Such a difference from the Catholic South and conservative Protestant North of Europe. Glad you had a chance to see both in comparison.
