Best Day Ever.


















Got up at 10 am to homemade breakfast of Dutch pancakes (thin!) and bacon. Walked over to Kandinsky, followed by an impromptu visit to the Rijksmuseum to see All of Rembrandt's Paintings. At One Time. Ever. How could I pass up the opportunity? Surely I'd be kicking myself on my deathbed. It was kind of cool actually - all of his paintings lined up chronologically. The dude painted quite a bit.

DID YOU KNOW...

that Rembrandt also painted some erotica as well? Indeed! It's always those religious types...

By 2:00 walked over to the Rokerij, had a latte like the civilized woman that I am and then decided to hunt for a nice little cafe for a light lunch bite. So I meandered into a nice cozy looking cafe and took a seat...

...and then I remembered that 'cafe' means bar; it's 'cafe restaurant' that I should have looked for. But I decided to just go with it and ended up having a bottle of Duvel and a piece of homemade apple pie for lunch.

Then started to make my way back home. Ducked in and out of cute shops all day. Bought some chocolate at a patisserie and now I'm back on my bed eating bon bons and watching Madame Bovary.
