6 September 2011 was a Tuesday, a bit unusual day for a VT-meeting especial when a storm is passing. Nonetheless, we Dutchies were crazy enough to welcome Ann & Howie on their European round trip.

Due to the rain we had a Plan A, B and C.
We skipped a visit to the Waterlooplein fleamarket (not much market due to the weather), but headed straight to the Staalstraat with it's special small shops and lovely view onto the Zuiderkerk church.
Along café De Jaren (one of the best coffee makers in town) towards the Mint. Umbrella's were needed.
Birgit was in need of more memory to store her photo's, so we made a detour to the Kalvertoren shopping mall. While there, we climbed the stairs to have a lookoff to a wet old town Amsterdam.
Another challange was to find a shop where Howie could get his glasses fixed; well one of the thingies that interfaces with his nose. In this process we made a quick stop and go visit to the Begijnhof with its Wooden House.
As the rain was very persistent Howie both a true Amsterdam umbrella at the Flower Market.
