Gerard Doustraat

There is something going on in the Gerard Doustraat. When you walk through this street that is in a nice part of Amsterdam, called De Pijp, you'll notice that the street is changing. New shops and restaurants are beeïng opened and trendy modern offices give this old neighbourhood new allure. For example the brandnew store of BLOND is a great place to be. A lot of space and daylight make this shop very inviting and pleasant to walk through and to buy happy things. Next to BLOND you'll find the "KINDERFEESTWINKEL" or Children's partyshop. A shop full of stuff that make every Children's party a succes. Decorations with a capital D and complete partyboxes with everything for a theme party. Find the right stuff for your prinsesses,
pirats or knights. For dinner in style visit The French Café. I will certainly go back to write more reviews on this interesting and vibrant street.

beschuit met aardbeienday

Today is "beschuit met aardbeienday".
We remember my father's birthday, the 17th of june 1930. He would have been seventyeight years old today. As beschuit met aardbeien, toast with strawberries, was the traditional treat on this day, all the familymembers, whereever they are, will eat this in honour of our great dad.
