Sitting on a slope outside with your coat on and having a drink, it is the the ultimate pleasure in Amsterdam. We still believe that spring once will come, so get your boat and your picnic-basket and go.
Here people tried to keep warm against the walls of the bridge to avoid the chilly winds. Temperatures are still below normal here, 13 degrees C (55.4 F) and lots of rain is coming. In two weeks time I am going south to the French and Italian Riviera, can't wait.
