in which i found a place where i wanted to live for a long, long time.
It’s hard to explain why, since we saw so many great places last September, but my favorite place was Amsterdam. At this point, I was all pictured-out, so there’s not much to show you, although I also bought a Diana Baby (for my birthday!), but have yet to process the 110 film.
What can I say about Amsterdam?
It was such a beautiful place, with so many pleasant people. Coming from Italy, where people could be a little brash and loud at times, we were taken aback by how pleasant and laid-back everyone here was. The whole topography of Amsterdam was so charming, and I loved seeing the house boats lining the sides of the canals. The sun just seems to beam down on this place, but it still looks crisp and beautiful instead of how warmly the sun touches the Philippines. Agh, I just love how the light hits Europe. It just makes everything gleam.

These Nutella waffles were so, so good. And they have these things they serve with coffee called candy cookies or something like that, and I loved them so much.

My birthday breakfast! I had a wonderful chive bagel. Ah, Amsterdam. I miss you a whole lot.
