We rented bicycles and spent a glorious day biking in Amsterdam with our friends Shirley and Iftach. It was a little hairy at first because I’m not used to biking in traffic. But I soon got the hang of it and things went well. Very, very fun.
This was not the outfit I started off with in the morning. I first put on white jeans and a white pullover, but Greg gently reminded me that my rental bike might have greasy bits. So I changed into a column of dark denim, combining my jodhpur jeans with a gauzy striped pullover, mixed media denim jacket and white loafers. I was inspired to wear denim on denim because there are lots of men and women doing exactly that on the streets of Amsterdam. I packed a few necessities into Greg’s backpack and was bag-free till the evening.
We spent more than four hours biking around the city. A lot of the time was spent in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark, a beautiful urban park covering more than 47 hectares. We stopped for coffee and cake, and spent some time relaxing under a tree alongside the lake. It was a wonderfully relaxing day.
