Tiny Car

Basically all cars here are much smaller than ones in the states. But this is an extremely small car. Two people barely fit into the car. As you can see many bicycles too even during winter.

Best Cake in Amsterdam

I looked up the web and this place was supposed to be the best. Very crowded with the customers. Still traditional European cakes - different from American or Japanese.

Light? Lunch

Another market weekend here in downtown Haarlem (just be clear this is in the Netherlands). Very nutty bread I found. Kind like a German bread base (a bit sour), with a lot of nuts in and out sides. Yummy.

Belgium Chocolate

I liked this chocolate when I went to a town in Belgium. I did not mind to drive back there but I found that they have a shop in Haarlem. This is the smallest box they have, but it still holds like 20 pieces. I have another BIGGER box to home...

Breakfast st Hotel

Might have uploaded a similar one before but this is what I have been rating in Amsterdam. Not too bad but imagine the same selection every day...

Ina's Recepit

We tried our favorites TV personnel, Ina. Oven baked salmon topped with lemon zest and panko. Lemon favor totally cut the richness of the salmon. Total success. We will try this again.

Weekend Home Cooking

A typical weekend evening, we cooked our dinner home. A light dinner - tofu / chicken burg. Why it was a light meal? We had a fancy dinner in the city yesterday to celebrate a special day which was put off several days.

French Lunch Two

My desert was home made strawberry ice cream. Rich yet not too sweet. Japanese / French style. A lot of topics to catch up over three courses meal.

French Lunch One

I forgot to post about this lunch. This Wednesday I went to lunch with another old friend to a French place. It turned out this area is famous for French restaurants. 2 hours of precious time.

In Tokyo

Back in Japan on business, and today I came to Tokyo for the work from tomorrow. This hotel is located just a minute from one of the biggest department stores in Japan, so very dangerous...
