Carpets made of tulips

Today was like a puzzle that I'm proud to say I had a nice time figuring it out.

I woke up not feeling so well and ended up cutting my plans back a bit.

I'm still in Amsterdam and decided to use my time today to check out the largest flower garden in the world. As you can imagine, it's located outside of the city. Getting to the garden took 2 buses- one to take airport and then one from the airport to the garden. I made it both ways with no issues. This may be the first time I've ever negotiated a bus system this way on my own, so it was a big relief that it worked out.

The weather was a bit cold and most of the tulips haven't come out yet. I have a feeling that the garden will be a completely different place in two weeks. The good news was that the garden had a number of indoor flower exhibits and shops.

After the garden, I tried another Thai place for dinner. The local restaurant I tried to go to had already stopped serving food. Thai restaurants seems to always be open late and cost less, no matter where I am.

Right now, I'm winding down and watching Seinfeld. It's one of the only English speaking shows on TV. If I had to choose, it's certainly not a bad pick.

Below are a few photos from today.
