Second Day Off
Friday was just as nice as Saturday. This time I went into Amsterdam for the day and had a list of things I wanted to do. First I started out by picking up a bike and then heading to the Haarlemerstraat and browsing through the stores, then having a really nice sandwich at Tramezzino. These were not your typical Dutch sandwiches, yum.
Then I went to go see the new Apple store and it also just happened to be the first day of the iPad 3 in Holland. Both the store and the iPad were really cool.
Next I checked out the Amsterdam ArenA:
Finally and I think most importantly I discovered Westerpark thanks to Joyce's recommendation. They were having a carnival there in a portion of the park. But just the park in general was cool, especially the old gas company buildings that are now a part of the park and turned into things like shops, restaurants, and bars. I also walked through the more natural parts of the park too. Definitely a place I plan on going back to.
