Today, on the first day of november, I decided to go to the monday gardenmarket at the Amstelveld. Skies were grey, yet the temperature was nice. After the shopping madhouse that Amsterdam centre is during the weekend, the streets were empty and quiet and wonderful to walk along. I left the tram at Rembrandtplein and walked up Utrechtsestraat to the Amstelveld. I spotted the bio-supermarket MARQT . It's a relatively new supermarket and besides the scary pricetags, just the place you would like to do your daily shopping. I bought a jar of mayonaise made from a Belgian recipe. At the gardenmarket I got myself a plant (viburnum). I walked through the Kerkstraat up to the Vijzelstraat and then to het Spui. Cappucino at the parisien style cafe called Luxembourg. On the cormer of het Singel I met two gorgeous pups in a bicycle basket and I met my old friend Yvette for a second cup of coffee. Everywhere, during my walk the trees were as yellow as trees can be.
Did you walk with me Lynn ?
