Sunday Late Lunch

Another gorgeous day, and there is no better place to have lunch.
It is the time of the year when my mom visited several years ago. Not cold or hot and just perfect.

Park Hotel

It has to be something going on at the park hotel. It is not that famous for out of city or country people, but this is one of the best classic hotels in the city. No UN activities, so who is staying there?

Looking for the Fall Colors

We knew it would be a bit too early but since the weather was so nice we drove 90 minutes north west to see the fall colors.
I packed Japanese style lunch box by knowing there is a good spot to sit. Magnificent views even not fully colored. Low red leaves trees looked almost like an ocean.
On the way back, stopped by a famous bread store for pumpernickle bread. Over 5 pound each and we got a half of it.

Dinner for Two

Spring roll, not like Japanese typical style, but not like Chinese style either.
Thesedays, my cooking does not have distinctive cuisine.

Halloween is Coming

Still September but the store we buy vegitables has been all decorated for Halloween.
Love the colors the fall brings to us.

Before Leaving...

As usual, I had a few hours before catching a train, yup I no longer drive down here.
The park was turned into some sort of market where stinkey cheese was on display.
Belgium royal family' have this sweet as well I heard. As it became autumn, it seemed appropriate to have chestnuts.

Ramen Night

Needed to come to this place this time after going to the other one or not eating ramen.
It opens at 6:30 and I was there 10 minutes earlier. A few groups of people were already waiting the shop to open. A family with kids were enjoying the noodles, and mot sure who's choice to come here today.

Taste of Paris

Weekend in Brussels again to change the pace. My favorite sweet place, Paul to have French pasteries. Even though I had a big breakfast, always room for something sweet.

Back in Amsterdam

It has exceeded 150 nights at this hotel this year alone. This is what you could get if you are a valuable customer, I guess. A bigger than room terrace. I should throw a party...

After Hair Cut

It has become my routine to go to a ramen shop after the hair cut. It is located in East Village, so it is easy to fund a ramen shop. Sunny yet really cool perfect day to be outside.

Saturday Morning

Thesedays I don't stay in Brooklyn Heights that often, but when I do it hits me how nice this neighborhood is. Nothing can beat this view just one block from my apartment. A bit chilly as it is no longer summer.

Lunch Home

We don't cook a big meal for a Friday lunch, this week was a bit special.
Stewed meatloaf with roasted vegitavles.
No more summer vegitavles on our table yet they were very good.

Sunny Sunday

As anticipated it turned out to be a nice weather. I took a different path to the park from usual. This is the museum triangle where three now open museums are located.
In the park, there was a tree a half down yet surviving. It seemed permanent.
On the way back I took another path with GPS and there was a swimimg race in the canal. I was like REALLY in the canal, as it is not cleanest water you can swim.

After the Shower

Morning shower is giving away clear blue sky. It seems the weather might be better than I thought.
Change the plan to go outside to enjoy this, as the fall/winter time is around the corner.
