"sprong" means "jump" (and I might be wrong about that...)

Jumpin on the NEMO steps with the Amsterdam skyline in the background.
So we made it to Amsterdam... my second time in this beautiful city, and Dad's first time in Europe. We make a good team :)

We were extremely exhausted after our overnight flight across the Atlantic, and knowing that we would soon have another as we headed into Africa. After roaming the streets of Amsterdam for a few hours, we saw a huge set of stairs looming in the distance on a building called NEMO (still don't know what that stands for. A nautical museum of some sort I think...) Eyelids drooping, we climbed the stairs for a nice view of the city. Of course we used this opportunity to introduce jump photography to the Dutch, and got some weird looks in the process. However, it was enough to get our blood flowing and we thought we felt a little more energized. But I guess we were wrong... not five minutes later, Dad fell asleep while holding a cup of Coke. The only thing that kept him from spilling it all over himself was that I woke up from my own brief nap in time to startle him awake with a smack on the arm. So we decided it was time to head back to the hotel in Haarlem... we were officially done for the day.
