Elandsgracht entryway

Here’s a drawing from two days ago; I was sitting at a cafe on Elandsgracht before meeting Tineke at Antiekcentrum.

Yesterday involved lots of cycling— around the Northwest part of town; through and around the Westerpark; and all around the new industrial / office area, Houthavens. Really interesting. It was a day of dramatic skies and Wind Tegen— that’s the Dutch term for when the wind is in your face no matter which way you’re cycling! (Wind Mee is when the wind is at your back, sailing you along.)
