art and nature tangled in thorny vines of vulture bones and crow feathers.
so…what does one wear in February in Amsterdam?
It can be chilly. And wet.
When you’re there, make sure you go to Feijoia (A Damn Fine Bar). Look for Sergej. He’s the impossibly handsome ex-Dutch marine who owns the place. Ask him to make you a cocktail. Watch him. He’s magic. And a sweetie. It’s on Vijzelstraat 39.
Are you into shoes? Jan Jansen makes amazing ones.
His protegee, Hester Van Eeeghen, makes great shoes and purses too:
Sigh. I LOVE Amsterdam. I could happily live there.
my sister says the same thing–she would love living there too. i probably won’t do much shopping except for gifts for my children and sister. i DO want to spend time in the museums and taking photographs. we only have a week, so i don’t think i’ll be able to see anything outside the city.
i will definitely look for Sergej!
Ah, Amsterdam is so compact you’ll find both stores on your rambles. And take a look in — honestly, their shoes are works of art. And I don’t have a shoe fetish.
Anne Frank’s house is very moving. And the Van Goghs!
both the Van Gogh museum and Anne Frank’s house are on my list.
i was thinking more along the lines of “outerwear.”
*GRIN* When are you going?
dunno for sure…i’ve been told a vague “couple weeks.”
That depends on what part of town you go to. 🙂
