To keep up with our tradition , after arrival the first thing on the agenda is coffee and of course the usual piece of cake. Found a nice cafe and parked ourself on a seat. They had a special on that day. A cup of coffee and a special sort of cake for 6.50 euros. Not knowing what it was we were reassured that it was very nice and creamy. Ok we went for it. The coffee was great and the cake was out of this world. It was a giant cream puff filled with fresh cream and the whole thing dipped in dark chocolate.I let you be the judge on that combination.
Feeling very satisfied and full we embarked on our walking tour through Amsterdam. So much to see of course. Wim knows his way around the city very well, and was a great tourist guide
We enjoyed the customary boat ride through the canals, another interesting thing to do. The commentary was also in english which helped a lot. It only took an hour and a half but was well worth it.
Walked through their China Town section and decided to have dinner in one of the restaurants there. Lookes like nothing from the outside but was good on the inside and the food was very nice. A lovely way to finish our day.
