Went to the Floating Palace Chinese restaurant for supper last night. Very nice restaurant, but very expensive. We were going to get a Chinese meal for 4 for 110 gilders ($85.00 approx), until Ryan notices that that price was PER PERSON!!! Yikes! We just ordered individuallz, but it was still expensive.

After that we walked to the train station where we were going to meet Colleen, Michelle, Scott, Ben, and Cara, some other Canadians we met. While we were waiting, we witnessed the cops arresting some black guy. The guy started fighting back, so the cops got out there billy clubs and started beating on the guy. Within minutes, there were at least 30 cops there. Quite a sight.

When the other guys showed up, we walked around the red light district for a while, went to a Greek restaurant/bar and had a drink, then back to the hostel.

We had planned on going to the Haag todaz, but no one except me heard my alarm, and we all woke up late. So Ryan, Neil, and myself took the train to Nijmegen to see the Canadian War Memorial/Cemetery and Museum. Had to walk about 2km to get to the cemetery. This was a personal thing for Ryan, as his dad's uncle is buried here. Ryan found the grave and took pictures, and stuck a Canadian flag in the ground at his gravesite.

Got back to Amsterdam and we met Colleen, Michelle and Scott at the Hard Rock Cafe for supper. Then went down to the main square for their Rememerance Day ceremonies.

Colleen, Michelle and Scott trammed it back to their hostel, we walked and got back about 9:30.
