I’m way behind in getting my Amsterdam material on this site. I have a lot of photos still waiting to be put up.
Well, on my last day at Amsterdam, I took a few hours before my plane to go to the flower market and pick up some gifts. Before shopping, though, I stopped at a place to get something to eat. I was running on empty. Holland is known for its pancakes. The texture is halfway between an American pancake and a crepe. The one I ordered folded in slices of banana. That’s chocolate sauce covering it and powerdered sugar. Combining this sugar hit with the very small but very strong coffee next to the plate: I was ramped up to the point where I needed water to dilute my blood a bit. (Breakfast was extremely good).
After breakfast, bought some tulip bulbs, postcards, and a plush, stuffed heifer for my friends’ newborn son. Also went crazy with my camera during those last few hours. Will have more photos shortly.
