Sunday is funday in Amsterdam

Sunday morning’s bus ride back to Amsterdam was much more comfortable.  This time, though we had no luggage, we were given a couch!  But unfortunately, all the main highways into downtown were under construction or closed to buses, so we had to debark from the bus and take the tram into Central Station.  This turned out to be a grand way to view the city!

Once we arrived, the group split up, some off for more museums, while others of us chose to explore downtown.  We started by taking another tram ride to the Palace area.  This was easy to do because we had bought the 24 hour Tram tickets (8 euros), so we switched lines and rode just two stops to Rokin.
