My view

I had to rise at dawn to get this picture... Lucky for me dawn isn't until 8am.

A lovely little juxtaposition between old and new here. Aren't those street artists clever!

Tea for one...

A bit tragic perhaps, but really, when there's stroopwafels (yes, that delicacy in the right hand corner) who needs friends?

Wintery Weather

It's fallin' thick and fast- too fast in fact to be captured on my camera.

A triumph for plantkind!

There are bulbs everywhere fighting up from under the snow. Something to look forward to.

The Best Sandwiches of Amsterdam

This window display had me immediately interested....
Best sandwiches in Amsterdam is a big call, and one I don't have the necessary culinary experience to evaluate (yet). Tasted pretty good to me though!

Met these chaps in my future street. Alas they don't purr, but they will do as pets for now.

Day One: S-N-O-W.

Like walking around with a map isn't enough of an embarrassment, I also quite obviously have not found my snow-legs yet. The streets are so slippery, I've had to tread with extreme caution...not a good look. Tomorrow's task is to master the art of strolling like a local.
