I see the part of the Bourse, the Royal Palace, the Magna Plaza and the Nieuwe Werk. I also enjoy the houses' structure and the lovely channels. Although modestly I think that the buildings need a deep clean up and that the rubbish couldn't be left on the pavement (I have seen doves and gulls fighting by rubbish food xD).
At the afternoon I visit the old Beaterio (where nuns lived), where the oldest house in Amsterdam is located. I buy some blue tulips in the BloemenMarkt and also go to the Waag and I think that it's one of the most beautiful buildings I have seen in Amsterdam.
After my first try to enter in Anna Frank house (the queue is kilometric), I end in the Red Light District. I consider myself liberal, but I'm still... amazed because of this place. I mean, the girls are not only exposing herself, but they hit the glass and tell men to enter in their rooms while moving sensually. I can accept it but if I enter in this part of Amsterdam without noticing (a few red lights are not enough warning if you're distracted), a kid could enter too!!! As I also feel some curiosity, I see that district and then go to the Botanic Garden, where I spend a couple of hours before going back to my Hotel.
