  1. Beautiful, Lance! Why is it called Amsterdam-Zuid instead of just Amsterdam? And it looks like this part of the river is outside the city? And are you able to speak some Dutch, like common phrases?


    1. Zuid means south, similar to “sud” or “sur” in Spanish. We’re staying in the southern part of the city, just against the city limits.

      Nope! No Dutch other than guessing at signs and now “zuid”, I guess. Haha.
