Great little neighbourhoods here, with great shops and local restos. We went to one in Chinatown ( not very chinese except a few stores and a gate but nice. Little café called Scallywag's ... yummy home made cooking. The owner is a Brithish Monarchist and the place is covered with Princess Diana memorobilia, great knick knacks. Food and tea were so good and very freindly service. We then had a pedicure...interesting little place.. there were so many people going in and out for massages.
One thing which is great here is the flowers, flowers and flowers everywhere... well it is tuilip country after all.
Before the Euro was introduced the cost in the Netherlands was just like home, now I can't understand how anyone can afford anything here..
Oh we made a great pitt stop at a $1.00 store.. guess more of a Euro store but much much nicer things then anywhere I have ever seen.
My favourite part of the Netherlands are of course the bikes. The bikes are amazing actually. Some really orginal ones, Children with visers in the front, the big boot or trunks for groceries and things in the back. No helmets ......the bike paths everywhere and hardly any locked.
It might be milder in Europe in winter but I would take a Montreal winter day anytime over this, wet, damp, drizzle, dark, grey winters....
We hung clothes out to dry the whole day but they were wet still, brought them inside and they dried in an hour.
Beautiful dogs everywhere .. but nobody picks up after their dogs... its just awful.. So you can never look up when you are walking.
Off for a long walk to the beach and since its a holiday in Egypt we are going to have something to eat with an Egyptian connection.
