To Haarlem and back to Amsterdam Centraal and finally to Rembrandtsplein
This morning Frankie and I and a friend, Katherine, went to Haarlem, about 15 minutes from Amsterdam by train. Little drizzly, but reasonably warm. Had some coffee, got some aged Gouda and treats.
Back at Centraal, we found one of the best bargains (by bargain, I mean shockingly expensive, but cheap relative to other things) in Amsterdam. The electric-assist pedicab. They ride in the bike lanes, past the mobs of people and give a great tour because of how slow they go. (Then we left Frankie's umbrella in the cab; we retraced our steps clear back to Centraal questioning each and every pedicab driver, gave up and bought a new umbrella, and hitched another ride on a pedicab, ugh, tired) Great day though.
