Day 4: Amsterdam/Haarlem

Day 4 in Amsterdam and we made a day trip to the nearby town of Haarlem. Haarlem is a very laid back and relaxing place, especially when compared to the crowds in Amsterdam for Queen’s Day.

Highlights included a canal cruise, a church, more Flemish fries, and visiting a “coffee shop” called “High Times”.


Unfortunately, something went screwy with either our camera or our SDHC card and a bunch of the pictures that we took somehow got corrupted. Lame.

For dinner, we went to an Indonesian place called Puri Mas and had the traditional rijsttafel (Indonesian “rice table”). Most of the dishes were excellent, although there were a couple of lamb dishes and we’re not huge fans of lamb. Some of the dishes were spicy but nothing overly so for me.
