Amsterdam – Pancakes, Flower Market, etc

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.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I need to start forming a habit of updating this blog at least every other day.  :)

The past few days, I’ve been occupied editing footage my brother and I took for our next project, as well as watching the Olympics.  I’m also kicking around some ideas for a series of webcams…

Anyway.  I wanted to jot something quick down.  Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been pushed back until next summer.  As a fan of the films, and the books, I thought I’d put up a link to the trailer from Apple’s Quicktime site.  Looks like it will be great when it comes around.
