Day 6: Hague/Amsterdam-Charlotte Yeung

Today we visited The Hague and Amsterdam! We saw two different ministers when we were outside the parliament building. It was shocking seeing how local everything was. The Capitol in America is swarming with police officers and reporters. Here, there were a handful of visible officers and a small news crew; completely different from America. I saw the Girl with a Pearl Earring and some surprisingly funny works of art at the nearby museum. After that, we had lunch. We ended up being late to the rest of the walking tour so we spent the next hour trying to catch up. Then I went to a market with a friend and had the best Xiao Long Bao of my life which was shocking. We walked around the city a bit more then returned to Rotterdam for dinner. It was a nice and eventful day full of surprises.
