The weather here in Amsterdam is very unstable this week; one moment you have sunshine, the next it's pouring down. I suppose it is a bit like an Australian winter.
I walked towards Muiderpoort Station thinking of walking all the way to work, but it started to look like rain so I took the bus for the last part.
The 10:00 coffee break saw cake for everyone. Management has decided to give a 'communication' speech every month with coffee and cake. I didn't take any cake, but I was mentioned in the speech as having done something nice.
Leaving work I walked into Molukkenstraat where there's a building site. They haven't even put one brick on top of the other yet but every house has been sold already.
The area between Molukkenstraat and the railway dike has been completely renovated in the last decade. Friendly streets with little parking place for cars, but lots of playing grounds for kids. Lots of little parks as well, even though the green stuff is reasonably new and still has a lot of growing to do.
I found a tunnel going under the railway dike and ended up on Polderweg. The Verheij sports hall is either being renovated or taken down; I don't know which. Presently it looks like a flying saucer has crashed here.
At the end of Polderweg, on the corner of Linnaeusstraat, is a high-rise building. The clouds were being reflected in the glass panels they've fitted a while ago to the galleries.
I walked through Pretoriusstraat towards Krugerplein. The sky was getting darker and darker.
When I got to Krugerplein it looked like rain. It stayed dry though. I walked into the AH to do some dinner shopping.
A remark by Renate about the stir-fry meals I used to make years ago made me look on the 'exotic' foods shelve. There's actually quite a variety of Japanese and Thai stuff there, so I had to be fast in buying some before they take it away never to be sold here again.
I got some stuff and then realized that fixing the meal would take too long; marinating the meat and cooking the rice would take me past my pill time. I bought a ready-made meal instead and will do the wok business on wednesday. If I start to like cooking again I might study on fixing a risotto one of these days.
