Day time saving ended today so we had an extra hour. A typical Sunday to have favorite sweets. I did not feel too guilty as I did a quick work out and I walked there and back to the hotel.
On the way back to Amsterdam, new and old windmills.
BTW, this is one of the best rooms I got yet. At least the view.

Day Trip to Brugge

Every one who has been in Belgium said to me that I should go to Brugge. That's what I did today.
It started as a rainy day but after waiting in a car gave me this clear sky.
Two was beautiful but so many tourists.

Dinner at my Room

Usually it takes more than 2 hours, but I worked in the different office today, which is only one hour away, oh I am talking about Brussels.
Take out dinner, as it is rainy and tired from a long week.

Fall Colors

It was a spectacular day. We went to the mountain to enjoy the fall color. Just about one hour drive brought  us this beautiful mountain top, I mean another 90 minutes hiking required though.
On the way a group of beetles, which was nicely blended to the fall colors.
BTW I made a bento box just like my mom would make. Nothing better than a home cooked lunch on top of the mountain.

Things I Did on Sunday

I needed to have a hair cut. Yes I could do this in NYC, but squeezing a hair cut for only three days every two weeks is not that easy. So the solution is to have it here. I don't think it is as sophisticated as it could be, only 30 minutes vs. 60 minutes but still acceptable. In that area there is a Japanese restaurant, so my lunch was a Noodle soup. I have to say not too bad at all...

My Hotel Room

This time my room even has a name. It is a suit like last time but it has an outside deck, yes private one. The view is amazing and I should hold a party...

Saturday in Brooklyn

Lunch in a restaurant co-owned by Jewish and Korean couple. Their menu has some Korean twist, like this steak and egg.
After getting some sun in Red Hook, we stopped by Baked. No typical cake, but coffee cake and some square. Yum, yum...
