Rando-List Episode 1

Sometimes I just have a bit of a random day here in Amsterdam.  Nothing particularly interesting happens, by Amsterdam standards, but just random odd experiences.  Not really enough for their own blog post, but too much for a simple Facebook update.  Because of this, I decided to start a new series of posts here at The Traveling Mogridges about random crap that I find slightly amusing about life in Amsterdam or wherever I happen to be.  I’ll keep a running tally of the random stuff and we’ll see where we are in a year.

1.  This is what 1:30 PM looked like today.

Cold, rainy, and dark.  The wife says I complain too much about it.  She’s probably right.

2.  I decided to have fish for lunch today.  Paid a visit to the local fish stand for a nice Broodje Haring.  Its a small airy yeast roll, split open and filled with pickled raw herring, chopped onions, and sliced pickles.  Sounds gross.  Tastes great!  I guess it helps if you REALLY like fish.

3.  I finally made it back to the Tuschinski theater for another movie.  We went to an 11 AM showing of The Hobbit, so we had great seats this time.  I snapped a quick pano of the auditorium.  It really is a pretty amazing place to watch a film.

4.  It’s Christmas time in Amsterdam, so lights are everywhere.  The city even gave us a nice tree right here in Rembrandtplein.  It compliments the mini-tree in our apartment quite well.
