On day 2 in Amsterdam, I left my hostel early and walked to the Anne Frank House. There were already long lines, but I waited it out and went inside. I didn't take any pictures inside, but it was amazing to see where the families were hidden away and how they lived. Of course, there is also a lot of information on Anne Frank and her writings.
After going inside the house, I went to the top of the church right next door. From there, you get some great views of Amsterdam. I tried to see over to where Anne Frank lived, but I couldn't see anything out of the ordinary.
I pretty much just spent the rest of the day wandering around Amsterdam, seeing what there was to see. It didn't end up raining at all. My foot wasn't feeling too bad at this time, either. I found some street performers out in front of the Royal Palace, and spent some time watching them. I passed by several coffee shops, but didn't bother going into any of them.
In the evening, the hostel I stayed at had a bible study, which was neat. I got to meet some people that way, including a crazy doctor (at least he said he was a doctor) that had been living out of the hostel for some time. He saw my foot and made some comments about it, as it was swollen and full of fluid. I also met a girl at the bible study, and we decided to look for some windmills the following day.
