The weather was nice today so a day trip to Delft, one hour southwest of Amsterdam.
Finally I had a chance to eat pancake, which is much thinner than an American one. Our snack was another traditional dish, apple pie.
We had a BMW this week.

We went to this unique restaurant across the river for dinner. We could have taken a ferry to cross the river but we drove there to be safe side.
This restaurant was converted from the warehouse, and the interior is very barebone.
Food was the best so far I had in the Netherlands.

A typical Sunday in Brussels, I took a walk to the square where all the chocolate stores located. There was a market from some region in France.
They were mainly selling, wine, cheese, bread, and of course Foie Gra. I could not buy 40 euro jaw, but this cute jaw with some fig in.
It wad a no car day in Brussels, so many bicycles in the city but not on the highway.
When I checked in at the hotel in Amsterdam, I got a room with terrace. Really nice view and it is cool to have a coffee outside.
I travel a lot, mainly on business, so I am so used to the idea of status at everywhere - hotel, airline, car...
This weekend is a good example, I paid less than 80 euro, but I have been assigned to a junior suite, which is like my apartment size, with obviously breakfast. Besides, everyone recognizes me by ad king "how are you?" in a personal way. I needed to be rewarded on my hard work, right?

Tonight was one of the most importation days in a year. As our tradition, we went to Sushi Den sitting in front of our preferred chef Mr. K.
We ate not a big Sashimi eater and we have some fish we don't eat, I carefully selected the fish one by one. It was all delicious, maybe because it was a special night after all... Till next year.

This was the second time I got bumped to the business class to JFK. The status between gold and PLATINUM makes a huge difference after all. The meals were the same but I had a glass of white wine and I chose fish dish this time.
Now we have FOUR houses thank to the flight attendant allowing me to take two and the person next to me giving his. There are total of 92 houses so 88 to go.

It is a perfect day to be outside and ride a bicycle. Mid 60 with a lot of sunshine.
Same sweet place I stopped by to get some sweets. The one with pink cream on top is a typical dutch sweet. Both were yummy.
Funny thing happened this morning at the hotel. I ran into the person I worked with like 10 years ago in NY. He said he lives in Amsterdam. A very small world.
