... on my French. All in all a good evening.
Today I got up and headed into town with Laurence, she works at the EU commission. I had signed up for a bike tour of the city as a way to get my bearings and see some sights. The weather was looking bleak but after the Amsterdam rains I can handle anything... I thought (more later).

In the evening there was a contest on the Grand-Place where various marching orchestras perfomred. It was something nice to see, though we wouldn't have went to see it if we hadn't been on Grand-Place anyways.
After that we went to a bar for a drink and then back to the Hotel to spend a relaxed evening.

Then we went to bed pretty early, cause we would have to find a new place to stay the next morning.
