My first stop was the Stopera or Het Muziektheater. This was the easiest visit as all I did was get off the Metro at Waterlooplein. I did see a few of the landmarks walking around the area such as the Jewish Memorial, the Joods Verzetmonument. The Waterloopleinmarket was just setting up and I saw some interesting vendors. The Rembrandthuis museum was also nearby. I was really amazed about how nearby a lot of these landmarks in the city were.

As today was Rachael's birthday, Elan baked up a cake for us to celebrate! The chocolate cake topped with vanilla ice cream was soooo delicious!
-Mmm that chocolate cake with strawberries and coconut shreds + vanilla ice cream was so delish!
-It was great to see some architectural sights. Especially the Steven Holl building as I got to study that building in depth quite a bit.
-The Rijksmuseum is amazing! It has a really varied collection of art and it looks beautiful
