And other then that I basically enjoyed my vacation. I spent hours wandering around Oslo with a novel, going from park bench to park bench and watching my skin go from ghostly white to pale beige (which is all that is going to happen to it this summer, as usual). I dropped by friends’ workplaces and kept them from doing stuff. I had a party, and before doing that I tried on everything I own and made pesto things using a champagne bottle as a rolling pin.
And I took a trip to Amsterdam. I was going to blog about the coffee places (and by that I mean the places that actually serve coffee), but based on what I really did there, a guide to the shopping districts would be better, paying special attention to shoe stores and lingerie shops. However, if you want to read about shoes and lingerie, I suggest you go here and here. Meanwhile, the weather is so nice and this is my last day off before I have to wear wool and cook over an open fire.
