It is such a dynamic city, and the "coffee shops" and red light district are just small parts. We wandered around with my friend, Margriet, who was an exchange student that lived with me in Seattle while she was attending a year of law school in the states. She took us off the beaten path and explained a lot about the Netherlands as a people and a country.
We were visually thrilled by the Van Gogh Museum and absolutely moved by the Anne Frank House. There is so much to see and do in the Amsterdam, that I highly recommend a visit next time you are in Europe.

If you need something "traditional" to eat, make sure to grab some pannekoeken and if you want somewhere to shop, make sure to check out the beautiful Amsterdam brand, Scotch & Soda.
