Up about 8:30 for another sumptuous Estherea breakfast. This morning Nancy had a "Toastie" made for us which is a yummy grilled cheese, sliced meat, tomato, etc sandwich. They also have two coffee machines which are available all day for your use and they make good coffee. I prefer a Café Latte and Espresso combo myself. If you have the munchies during the day there's always some cookies & cakes on the side table to go with your coffee and different nuts at the bar behind you. After some discussion/thought and a 5 minute walk we are the Royal Palace of Amsterdam via the Magna Plaza which is like a shopping mall in a palace. Nice Royal Palace, good well organized concise audio guide with secondary options but a tough shooting environment (1600 ASA & 1/8 second & one 15 second exposure). After the Palace it was the same 5 minute "slog" back to our hotel and some drinks and snack. Then we decided to see the “Nine Streets” and the best store was the first which had new women’s cloths and antique other things
