Then we walked through Albert Cuypmarkt, described as one of the largest open markets in the Netherlands: www.iamsterdam.com/en/visiting/what-to-do/shopping/amsterdam-markets/albert-cuypmarkt.

Though it was interesting to visit the half-food, half-flea market, it was a bit ho-hum compared to the ones in Paris. I know I sound like a total Francophile right now, but it’s tough not to compare the two since we were just there.

Afterwards, we ate at kitschy Middle Eastern restaurant that was once an old church. I had a durum, which was a grilled kebab rolled in garlic yogurt sauce and flatbread. It was a nice change from all of the bistro and brasserie food we’ve been eating for the past month. The bathroom decor was pretty neat.
