Eric will be working in the highrise building that says "TU Delft," on the twelfth floor.
img_2086.jpg
And on the twelfth floor was this poster about the school's Aibo robot soccer team, which we heard about at WAFR.
img_2087.jpg
Some of the people Eric will be working with.
img_2088.jpg
Outside was this bike lane, wider than the sidewalk and extremely long.
img_2089.jpg
A river running through Delft.
img_2090.jpg
The train station in Delft, from across the river.
img_2091.jpg
We took the train to Amsterdam. Here's the view getting off the train.
img_2092.jpg
And here's the view inside the station, Amsterdam Centraal.
img_2093.jpg
The front of the train station, which was under construction.
img_2094.jpg
A view down the main street leading away from the train station.
img_2095.jpg
Approaching the Dam, the main square in Amsterdam.
img_2096.jpg
A large building on the Dam.
img_2097.jpg
Madame Tussaud's, a wax museum, on the Dam in Amsterdam, and some street performers also.
img_2098.jpg
A view down one of the walking-only streets in the shopping district near the Dam.
img_2099.jpg
And a look down one of Amsterdam's canals.

img_2101.jpg
And then we went back out to explore. Another canal in Amsterdam.
img_2102.jpg
And another waterway.
img_2103.jpg
We came across this little thing, even smaller than a SmartCar. I really don't think I could fit inside.
img_2104.jpg
And then it started raining, of course. We wandered through a little market in the middle of Amsterdam.
img_2105.jpg
On our way to the Anne Frank museum, we came across this bizarre little area.
img_2106.jpg
A look up at Anne Frank Huis.
img_2107.jpg
The entrance to the house and museum. We couldn't take pictures inside, but I very much recommend a visit. It was enlightening.
img_2108.jpg
A nearby statue of Anne Frank.
img_2109.jpg
When we weren't walking, we got around in Amsterdam using their tram system. Here's one of them.
img_2110.jpg
A view down a shopping street in Amsterdam in the rain.
img_2111.jpg
A bizarre garden in the middle of the city near Leidseplein, with little statues of iguanas.
img_2112.jpg
And also near Leidseplein, a bizarre proclamation on this columned structure, which states "Homo Sapiens Non Urinat In Ventum."
img_2113.jpg
A busy area near Leidseplein in Amsterdam.
img_2114.jpg
We wandered down to the Vondelpark, which is a nice large park near the city center.
img_2115.jpg
Walking down a path in the Vondelpark.
img_2116.jpg
Back on the street, an approaching tram. We should have more of these in the United States.
img_2117.jpg
The gate at the entrance to the park.
img_2118.jpg
Back at Leidseplein, there were people playing chess on this outdoor board. Black pretty much had things wrapped up.
img_2119.jpg
The only real windmill we encountered in the Netherlands was in downtown Amsterdam of all places.
img_2120.jpg
Another look at the windmill. My guess is that it isn't functioning and is merely there for show.
img_2121.jpg
We found this great item in a small playground while walking. The central column is stationary. Wes is falling off.
img_2122.jpg
Here he is doing a little better. It is very difficult to keep going for long.
img_2123.jpg
After that, Eric and I decided to check out the Red Light District, which was interesting, to say the least.
img_2124.jpg
Another picture of the same sign. I didn't take any more pictures in the Red Light District, since it is not very good for general audiences.
