Poll said people would want to see a romantic Amsterdam scene from TFIOS. Since I've never been to Amesterdam I had to do a litle research on how the interior of the Anne Frank museum looks like, you know, to make the pciture more accurate. I dont know if this is the room were the kiss "happened" (did not happen) though, but it fitted the description :) (when i read the book i imagined the palce quite different, but the kiss as it is portrayed here. As some of you night know, i like to draw from imagination rather than "research" or reference, but since this place is a real one, i just had to)

Anyway, while doing my research I found (as it ought to happen) an official Anne Frank House (museum) page called The Secret Annex [link] and it is so cool! GO VISIT! you can walk through the house in 3D and see it as it was furnished back then, watch some videos, listen to some diaries passages etc. Ive learned!

Dear Katty: (will not rip off Kitty's name)

After this walk through Anne Franks life I realized I remember so little about the book (read it in school, oh so many years ago) that I went to my house library (yes, it can be considered a library, books are a major hit at my home, we have way too many) and found the copy of El Diario de Anna Frank that I read when I was a child, that's in spanish, por supuesto, AND a 1958 English copy (bet it was my moms), that has that great old book smell and that I do not dare to open fully, since all its brownish pages would detach one by one.
Frankly (no pun intended) I wont re-read it now, but I'll put near my night stand for a future nostalgic read :)

Yours, Pal

The English 1958 copy of the book, features a movie poster as its cover ! (I hate when book covers change to their movie posters). It says, "See George Stevens' Production THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK a 20th Century-Fox Presentation" (inside a movie film tape drawing) the actress I asume played Anne Frank in the movie, looks old. Not very Anne Frankish.

Also, my country makes so little impact on other countries (some people dont even know were it is.. hell, as if all people knew every country's location XD I know I dont!) that whenever I see a reference of it, I get a tad bit happy, and Who knew! Anne Franks official page would have an antifacist poster from the dictatorship goverment years of my country! ( [link] )

here you can find this image Tumblr [link]

and forgive the horrible perspective... on building and people... its just the old mans head looked too big and took all the picture if done correctly XD lets just imagine his head is tiny and that hes sitting down :) and not being eaten by the floor.
i suck at perspective.

Characters belong to John Green who wrote the book ;P
