Visit the Concertgebauw if you are into classical music.

Check in at a VVV office and get some ideas on tourist attractions.

Anne Frank Haus is also a good visit.

Ahh, relaxation in Amsterdam.  Indeed.  

If you can get in to see Concertgebouw, do it.  I don't imagine it's easy to get in, though.

I've spent the entire afternoon walking around Amsterdam.  Just what I needed to relax.   Listened to Duke and Maynard on the train ride form Enschede to Amsterdam.  The first tune was "A' Train. These days I don't often to get a chance to really listen to music.  When I travel I make up for it.  Listened to Sonny Sharock, Russwel Rudd, Carla Bley, Red Rodney, Julien Priester, on the flight to Frankfurt.  I bought a pair noise reduction headphones (Sony) last year.  They work great on airplanes. Speaking of airlplanes, I will post my experience traveling with my horn.  

The sky was overcast and was great for taking photos. I noticed a few Jazz clubs.  It looks like this is a town with an active nightlife. The hotel gave my a bottle of wine due to a small screw up. Not sure if I'm going to venture out.  I'm still recovering from one of the nights in Cologne.  You'd be suprised how much is  accomplished over a few brews.  

Joe Bowie lives in Amsterdam.  I may try to find out if he is playing tonight.  Defunct would be a great band to hear.
