Amsterdam, 24th-28th March 2007

We had a few days holiday to take and decided to spend them in Amsterdam. Jen was about a month pregnant, so we took things easy

Outside the hostel

 

It was overcast, but not unpleasant weather

 

It's good to see local materials being used in construction

 

Zuiderkerk

 

We went to see the Bodies exhibition - dissected corpses preserved with silica gel replacing the water. It was very interesting, but left us amazed that more things don't go wrong
