We celebrated my 20th birthday while in Amsterdam. Of course I had to go all meta and take a photo in front of this movie poster for "Birthday Girl" movie starring Nicole Kidman (which I had never heard of or saw).
We went to the HRC to celebrate my birthday. (see a theme developing here?)
Another iconic Amsterdam canal shot.
We also went to the Anne Frank house. It was so sad and powerful to see the place where Anne and her family hid during the war, until they were found. I'm not usually into touristy things, but this would be a "must see" because of the human element. I had read "Diary of a Young Girl" before the trip, so all those thoughts and emotions were pretty fresh when we visited the house.
Next up on these lame ass recaps of a trip 13 years ago: PARIS!!
