I know. I've been so busy lately, I frankly haven't had the time. And I agree with you, easy to get burnt out.
Amsterdam was certainly, interesting. There was indeed a ton of construction going on, but I noticed that in several other places too (Ghent and Brugge had quite a bit). The city was kinda cool looking, but hat a grimy, dirtiness that I didn't care for. Literally trash everywhere. But the architecture and canals were obviously cool, as well as the food/beer. It's really hard to form an solid impression having only been there once, and only for a few days.
