Had a chance to have herring in Amsterdam. I would rather eat this on top of the bed of vegetables or eat as Sashimi. I like it but not with bread next time.

Summer time started this morning, so we lost one hour... I hope I can still wake up at 6:20 tomorrow as usual. Just walked the city close to the hotel to get the bearings. Very nice weather and people are enjoying it outside.
This week I am staying at a different hotel. They have upgraded me to this junior suit where the room is twice the size and all Extra amenities. Have been spoiled on the hotels, but honestly there is nowhere better than home. But I do enjoy this stay though.

A beautiful Saturday we had. I can see the spring is JUST around the corner. We did not run into the flowers on the trees but you can smell it is there.
BBQ I used Korean sauce with some twist. Broccoli rabe which has bitter taste so we made "Karashi Ae" instead of typical cooking method Italian does. For extra fiber, "Gobo" salad. There is nothing better than home cooking meal, and not eating by yourself.

It started cool but it turned out to be a very nice day today. We decided to go to the park to enjoy this gorgeous weather. On the way to the park we stooped by one of our favorite bagel stores on Bergen street. Nice to feel the spring with strong sunshine. I felt I am observing the sun, which I missed last four weeks.
Just came back from Amsterdam and we went to a near by Japanese restaurant in the heights. I can see I am in the heights as there are so many mixed crowd - age, background, languages, etc. Tomorrow some home cooking and of course bagels.

There is one decent European pastry in Haarlem. I bought these two today, and had one of them for a late night snack. It is a puff filled with fresh cream like you can get in Japan. In US Italians make puffs but they fill them with heavy pastry cream, which I am not a big fan.
