Louise had been introduced to another Dutch foodstuff through her coworkers - french fries with mayonnaise. Apparently this is consumed in the states, as it was not foreign to her. But as a Pennsylvania girl, if I get an odd topping on my fries, it's gonna be cheese or gravy, or both actually. Mayonnaise is for sandwiches.
But since I AMSTERDAM, I got some. These are our mayonnaise fries.
They look completely disgusting, don't they?
But the cherries look good!
We also went to the flower market, or Bloemenmarkt. Tulip bulbs and fresh flowers and all sorts of flower paraphernalia are sold along the street and in floating barges tethered to the side of the canals. Fabulous. Technically, I don't think one is permitted to take photographs in the Bloemenmarkt. Whoops!
