As you would imagine most of our days were filled with visiting cafes, exclaiming in awe at the beautiful architecture, eating tons of amazing food and visiting the sex museum. I must say one of my favourite things this time round was the food, thick dark loaves of bread, handmade farmer’s cheese, stroop wafels, hearty soups. It was really my kind of cooking and my body really enjoyed it too!! We found one restaurant we especially loved called Café Latei. They made amazing sandwiches, great coffee, delicious desserts, tasty soup and on evenings they had a special Ethiopian menu and everything in the store was for sale and I mean everything probably even the dishes we ate off of. All in all I think we ended up going there three or four times.
We were lucky enough to be in
during Amsterdam 11/11/11 and get
told about a meditation for peace at the Dam (a huge monument in central ).
It was a very cool experience sharing meditation with a bunch of strangers who
may not speak your language, but in our common desire to change the world we
can come together and communicate with our souls. I give props to everyone who
was there as it was cold! And we certainly did not make it through the full
hour without having to scamper off to a warm restaurant to warm our toes and
fingers. Once we were nice and warm we went out to Ruigoord, a small little
neighbourhood that had been annexed for demolition but squatters had prevented
it and they turned the area into an awesome little hippy village. So we danced
away with our hoola hoops for world hoop day in an old church that had been
saved by a bunch of hippies :D Amsterdam
