my spring training officially started today. lots of walking. it feels good. i probably walked close to 15 miles today. my hotel is about 15 or 20 min walk from the red light disctrict.



an evening view of my hotel.


i'm on the 3rd floor. walking up and down these super steep stairs is a great way to get the legs moving in the morning.


the graffiti is just amazing here. its totally art. its actually very clean and known through the city as a spektical to be viewed as art not a dirty gang thing.


these canals are awesome. they break up the city and are good markers to find your way. i actually walked all the way back to the amsterdam central station today.


oh yea, plenty of chocolate stores to get you thinking about sweet things. i have a problem in that department.

its awesome to walk through miles of little streets then turn into a tiny coradoor stuffed with shops and people everywhere. then you pop out into these huge piazzas.


beautiful brick streets. the temps were actually very nice today. about 40 degrees or so.


so awesome.

if you walk 5 miles per hour for 15 minutes to the red light district, that makes it about 1.25 miles. If you walked 15 miles that is about 6 trips to the red light district. You must be tired.

PS go find some penicillin.

I would have pulled a chair up to that table of chocolate and handed them my credit card.
