The next morning, Evelien’s dad drove us to our hostel – the Stayokay Zeerburg where we were staying for the following 2 nights. The outside of the hostel looked like it used to house a school and as we got into our room we were surprised to see that the room had really high ceilings. We were much closer to the city now and as we had some hours to kill before check in we explored the area a bit, which was more or less the immigrant neighbourhood of the city.
We spent the next two days doing some more exploring of Amsterdam which was incredibly filthy the day after because the cleaners were on strike. We spent most of the day walking around and returned back to the red light district area where we found a nice street with nicer coffee shops.
On Saturday night Andre and I went clubbing to Amsterdam’s version of Gay Bash which was sooo much fun. We got back to the hostel at about 4:30 am and I slept through the free breakfast in the morning, waking up at 12. I didn’t really want to do that much as I was pretty exhausted so stayed back in the hostel till about 2pm before going to House of Bols. The weather was pretty miserable by then – it was raining pretty heavily so we returned back to the hostel at 6:30pm where I just spent the night in bed and we flew out the day after.
