Waking up on an Amstel River houseboat. A perfect soft boiled egg. Grey. Red. Still Life With Grapes, Pears and Lemons. Felix Vallotton. Fossils. Coffee and couches. Tiny bone escargot spoons. Six hundred years of books. Mummies. A high horse. A golden turtle. Strolling through squares. Slow food in a circular church. Gezellig!
