Reasons for trip

We went out for a walk to Begijnhof, which used to be a refuge for pious women. Maybe there are not so many pious women around these days, as these houses are now occupied by low-income female senior citizens. This is a rather odd tourist attraction, as it brings in loads of tourists, to what is effectively someone’s place of residence. A pretty place to look round though, and it's free. It's also close to The Amsterdam Museum, so you easily visit both of these attractions in an afternoon.
