- One celebrates Thanksgiving in Amsterdam by enjoying a brunch of aeropress coffee and coconut pancakes. Then, a saunter through the oldest street market in Europe, Albert Cuypmarkt, is in order, where gouda cheese, stroopwafels, and smartphone covers can be found (though no purchases made). I recommend a stop in the Amsterdam City Archives while it rains, where you can search the items on display in the tiled basement vault. One such item is the 1942 police report for Anne Frank's stolen bike. After this, your life will never be the same once you step inside the neo-Gothic church, Krijtberg, and absorb it's utterly beautiful interior. 😍 Go explore the 14th century Begijnhof afterwards, a hidden courtyard of houses and gardens. You will also discover the oldest wooden house in the Netherlands in this same area, dating from around 1495. Don't forget to stop for an afternoon coffee at some point...and to also  have a chat with the man who runs the frites stall by the Westerkerk about the challenges and importance of designing a Holocaust curriculum for kids. Certainly don't forget that. 😃😀

- Today's #lilbookishthanks post has to be about The Diary of Anne Frank, since today marks the first time I have visited the legendary space where the diary was written! Standing in Anne's room was profound, knowing she wrote for so many hours in that space. I began to reflect on my own diary writing--I started a diary when I was nine and continued from there. It's such a valuable thing. And how privileged we are to have Anne's diary. More thoughts and photos to come! ❤❤❤
