The cold weather was a surprisingly nice change, and after a final un-dutch breakfast (vegemite on toast) we were on the train to central Amsterdam. The first day we were welcomed to Amsterdam with some serious rain, of which we were a little unprepared! It was a perfect day to sit in a 'brown cafe' (different from "coffee" shops) and drink ...
