One of unique dishes at a Chinese restaurant in China town. I learned this place from my ex coworker. This crab dish is always good.

As both have been here in Rome before we decided to go outside of Rome. It was a wonderful decision we made. Subway and local bus brought us to this wonderful town. Look at the view. We saw many olive trees on the hills.

After walking around the city, another round of coffee and of course chocolate cake was necessary. This time, another famous and classic cafe we accidental found. I liked this place better than the one yesterday.

I think I have heard about it, but did not know it is an Austria thing. Anyway, there was a stand selling unique cheese toast. They have heating systems directly melting cheeses. Once it is nicely browned, they scrap the surface and top on the toast. They have us a sample, so we did not buy a full serving.
We started the day with semi-healthy breakfast at the hotel. This is one of the rewards staying so many nights at hotels to have a status giving me a feel that I am treated like a king. Nice top floor room facing a park in vienna.

Usually Sunday is one of the quiet days, but it is different today as there are a lot of pop up shops in the city. While doing the laundry, yup I have to do, I smelled something good, and this is what I ended up with. Not sweet except powder sugar. I believe it is different from Belgium type.

No sunrise that Haarlem is famous for cheese as it is surrounded by all farms with cows all over.
It looks like swiss cheese but usually there are no holes. I have been eating these almost most every at the hotel for breakfast. I found that one of my nieces likes cheese, so this is for you.

I had a car yesterday but did not use it - cold and cloudy day and I did not feel I drive to somewhere, so no car today. It was rainy when I woke up but by the time I was ready to go out, it started clearing out. There are a few museums in Haarlem and this is supposed to be the oldest museum in Europe. I did not go inside, as their exhibits are not my taste - older European (as I like after the impression period). On the way there, I stopped by the other one where I found perfect coffee cups at their gift shop. It was much cheaper price than this as he is from the Netherlands, I guess.

I am talking about the trip to Paris.
I think I am fortunate to live in one of the best cities in the world, NYC, but Paris is at something different level.
I could not get enough of the tower. Wherever you are in Paris, you can see the tower from where you are. I was not crazy enough to go to the top, but I bet the view from the top is great.
I am surely coming back to Paris sometime very soon. I can feel it.
