Seen in Amsterdam

The other day we went for one of our walks in Amsterdam, the sun was shining bright and it was just perfect. We had soft ice-cream, a merveilleux, and avocado sandwich and a stop for mint-tea and hummus on bread at one of my favorite places, Café de Jaren (Nieuwe Doelenstraat 20-22). I love it so much because it is central, the food is good, though not overpriced, you can get international press free to read while you are there, if you are lucky you get to sit in a terrace by the water, and everybody mingles there: old, young, families with kids, businessmen, groups of girlfriends catching up...

We were able to sneak a peek inside the renovated Rijksmuseum and I was impressed. It looks like one of the big museums, it could have been the Louvre or the British Museum. There is a sort of tunnel in the middle of the building where it's possible to bike or walk through. It was the first time I saw it, as it had been closed to the public for so long.

We walked and walked and walked, we did some small shops, and we serendipitously found a good friend of mine and her boyfriend during our stroll and stopped for a chat.

Do you have any cities that  you love because no matter how many times you visit there is always something new?
