arrival

i've arrived. after the 8 1/2 hour flight i found my resting place for a bit.

so i had an amazing flight. smooth as silk. tristan got lucky like me, and sometimes on a long flight (especially mondays) you just might get an entire row to yourself. well that happened to me. it sure is nice to have the extra space in coach.


so we landed and i swooped through customs like a day at starbucks. they didn't even ask me one question. frankfurt germany or mexico is like totally scary when you answer to armed gaurds. wow i was through in seconds looking for my train ticket. another note, dutch trains are much nicer than italian trains. not to knock the italian rail or anything but damn they have it going on over here. again, another model for perfect public transportation. i zoomed to the amsterdam centeral station from the airport and found a taxi. he was awesome. right to the hotel. i forgot that when i visit europe i need to remember that everything is small. i love it. small roads, small bills, small hallways and of course small hotel rooms. this hotel kicks total ass. the hotel V. the chick that checked me in was totally hot and so helpful. i'll have to take a pic of her later when i wake up. the decor is awesome. its 5:30a.m. here right now and i checked in no problem. candles lit all over the tiny little lobby. so cool. i'm going to bed now. pretty tired. can't wait to get rest and venture out with the camera to see the land. i'm very happy to be here.
