This morning I set out to meet the women from the AWCA (American Women's Club of Amsterdam) in Amsterdam! I left the house at 0830hrs. First off, I got on the bus:
Where it stopped at Haarlem Centrale:
Then I bought a train ticket to Amsterdam, total: 7,60 Euro round trip. There was an announcement and I gathered from the disappointed looks and everyone leaving the platform that the train wasn't going to show up! So, I followed everyone to another platform and Lo and Behold-another train to Amsterdam!
After arriving in Amsterdam Centrale I got on the #16 Tram to the Stadhouderskade stop. At almost exactly 1015 hrs I arrived at the restaurant: De Taarte Van M'n Tante at Ferdinand Bolstraat 10, Amsterdam.
We finished having our cake and coffee and went around the corner to a cute little organic shop where I bought some quinoa and dates. Afterwards I got back on Tram #16 to head back home. While I was riding along, I saw a bunch of people skating on the canal. Soooo, I stopped to take pictures!
When I reached Haarlem Centrale Station, I decided to just walk home the rest of the way. It's about a mile from there to the house.
