Amsterdam - Friday May 19, 2000

Today started with an excellent breakfast and a bit of taking-my-time during it (as I had awoken too early for the appointed meeting time with Josiane).

We took the tram with Catherine to visit the Van Gogh museum, which I like (but as I'm not fond of museums, it was just another museum). There are a few pieces of work from Van Gogh that I like. Let's say a dozen. The rest of his work I don't really enjoy as it is my opinion that with such a technique as his, he could have made much more beautiful things (...)

Then we went to the Albert Cuyp Markt. It was a real experience! Essentially cheap clothes, miscellaneous and unuseful stuff, and beautiful cheese, fruits and flower displays.

We dedicated the remainder of the afternoon to sight seeing, having a coffee break somewhere and visiting the shopping mall (unavoidable stop for a woman :-).
