We got an early start and visited the famous Amsterdam Diamond Museum that was conveniently located down the street from our hotel. It was very odd to navigate and, of course, they were tempting you to buy jewelry around every corner, but it was pretty neat to see. Sadly, most of the diamonds in the museum were replicas but it was very informative on how diamonds are mined, cut, and buffed to be the beautiful little stones they are. I shockingly escaped the gift store without any souvenirs from this place.
Upon our return to Amsterdam, we visited the floating flower market. The flowers were amazing! I went crazy taking pictures and you're only seeing a few of them below. They even had cannabis growing kits. I'll let you know if I can get it through customs!
