Things to do in Amsterdam when it rains

  • Toast a baguette and eat it with butter and cherry jam purchased at the Noordmarket
  • Do a load of laundry in the amazingly efficient European washing machines.
  • Read the New York Times on line.
  • Listen to John Coltrane and Django Reinhardt
  • Make an omelet with zucchini and basil and eat it while watching the rain.
  • Pet the cat and keep him from climbing on your computer as you try to blog.
  • Wash the dishes from last nights Monkfish in cilantro-coconut sauce that you made on a whim.
  • Rearrange the lilies that you bought at Noordmarkt yesterday
  • Finish reading "Eat Pray Love" and hope you won't get jealous at the descriptions of falling in love in Bali.
  • Iron linen skirts
  • Read US weekly to make sure you don't lose your American edge.
  • Listen to "This American Life" on the Ipod podcast.
  • Wonder why you didn't buy rain paints for cycling in the rain on Saturday when the store was open.
  • Take a nap.
