Amsterdam

I have visited this city four times already and every visit offers a different perspective. In my first visit, I rented an apartment right at the heart of the city; the second visit, I stayed in an attic.  The third and fourth visits were in a hotel.  But it was the room in the attic that gave me a real taste of Amsterdam.  As you climb the stairs, it gets narrower and narrower.  No wonder they have such big windows, to bring in the furniture.

Salvador de Bahia

Salvador de Bahia is one of the oldest colonial cities in South America founded by the Portuguese in 1549.  In all my travels to Latin America: Salvador, Quito, and Cartagena are the most beautiful colonial cities I have seen so far.
