Ah, it was like summer had unexpectedly landed in Amsterdam. A group of us from work decided to grab take-away meals from the cafeteria and have lunch out by the Herengracht to take full advantage of a rare, beautiful, summer-like day in the city. As it was warm enough I took off my coat and teased the Latinas that it felt like we were in Madrid. Strangely they seemed to agree. I’ll have to make a trip there soon just to find out but for now a hearty meal by one of Amsterdam’s scenic canals will do.
