we are loving it here! the perfect weather, the canals, house boats, the mix of the old city center and the modern architecture, white haired children and bicycles. bicycles everywhere! we extended our stay an extra day just to see more.
we stayed with a lovely family of couchsurfing hosts for 3 days and now we are in a hotel right in the center near the train station. tomorrow we leave for utrecht to see a house designed by gerrit rietveld. i studied this architect in school and actually wrote a couple of papers on him and this house. i'm quite excited to see it for real!
