    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    A day trip to The Hague (...it's a lot more interesting than Rotterdam). It's about an hour by train.

    Thank you for the recommendations. It is much appreciated.

    So my next question... where is the best coffee shop in Amsterdam that you could recommend?

    I actually wouldn't know, you'd be surprised how many locals don't smoke cannabis.

    Having that said, talk to any tourist you see on the street, and they can tell you.

    Agree. There is no best coffee shop. Just explore and experiment...

    honestly, just walk around down town. its a walking city, you will see lots of cools things. off of rebraintsplien is a great map store, just a little away from the holocust memorial is a great cheese store, and the whole pedestrian area down town is full of cool stores. have fun
