This morning Joasia and I cycled to the Amsterdamse Bos in the morning to go for pancakes at the Meerzicht, which is kind of like a farm, petting zoo and a playground in one. We met Eva, Scott and their kids there. (As I’m writing this, I realise I promised Jim that I would take a photo, which I totally forgot. Sorry, Jim!)
The bike ride over was lovely as it was early enough for it not to be too warm yet and the city to be very quiet. The only people that were out were super healthy people who were out for a jog and people who’ve got their shit together and got up early to read their newspaper in the morning sun on the terrace of a café. I even saw a bunch of people playing table tennis in the park.
The farm was kind of cool and was also quiet, with only a handful of people there. When the kids arrived we spent some time feeding the deer, which was cool. We looked at teh peacocks, the chickens, the ducks and the geese. We also played in the playground, which I enjoyed a lot.
When the pancakes came, we had a great brunch. Afterwards we said goodbye to the kids and cycled back. It was a very pleasant morning. When we came home, we watched Game of Thrones. Also great. Great day altogether.
