Cat-cuddling coffee time with Renske


Since the ferret is staying at a friends place until we find a new place to live in Amsterdam, it is nice that Garfield the neighbor cat is hanging around in the garden outside. He is the ultimate cuddle-machine. Hihi. So I force-cuddled him a lot yesterday,and a bit today while Renske and I had coffee and lunch at my place.

Fuck IKEA, let’s have lunch!

We decided to drop the trip to IKEA and go have lunch at “Greenwoods” instead. “Greenwoods”is located in the Jordaan area next to the kanal.

They serve salads, sandwiches, juices, coffee and they have a lot of tea! Probably because this place is an english tea room and a restaurant. So if you are a sucker for tea, this is The place to go. One pot of tea for one person costs 4,95 euros. And I paid 7,95 euros for this portobello sandwich.


This is one of the better places I have been in this tourist area.

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

Lunch at “Dante Kitchen and Bar”

I just came back from lunch with Marie Celin and her boyfriend Sven.


At first we had planned to go to “Singel 404”, a great cafe with good prices and really good food, but unfortunatelly it was full. So we ended up at “Dante”.  The service there was good but the food was even better.


The prices were a little bit more expensive than usual though. I paid 15 euros for to glasses of orange juice, one cappucino and scrambled eggs with salmon.


Then I said goodbye to Marie Celin and Sven who are heading back to Norway again. They loved the city so hopefully they will be back soon!

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.
