Exploring Europe Part 11 || Amsterdam City

Today is our final day for our trip.. and we spent it by walking around Amsterdam city.. But we were a bit delayed because of the rain.. Only to learn that it always rain cats and dogs here in Amsterdam..So you can always continue walking unlike in Malaysia you will get soaked..

From our walk, I fell in love with their row of houses along the canal.. so unique.. once I noticed some building are not even standing straight..

For lunch, we went to an Indonesian Restaurant with a couple of friends who coincidently are also on a trip to Amsterdam from Manchester.. it was fun to travel in a much bigger group.. One thing, Adam is not dependant on us.. he would always prefer walking with other people (in this case kakak-kakak).. The food according to the friends from Manchester was marvelous.. it seems it have been quite some time for them to indulge on malay food.. so this is their chance..

We took their GVB tram to the restaurant.. you only need to pay the fare once.. and you can use the card for the next 24 hours anywhere you go.. on the 24th hour & 1 sec you will no longer able to use the card.. and you need to touch your card when you board and touch again before going off.. it is so convenient.. you can buy the ticket on the tram..
