I'm back from a nice few days in Amsterdam, where the weather was ideal, the strolls along the canal beautiful, and my feet ached from the number of kilometres I racked up every day. If you're at all museum-minded on a visit to the city, I can heartily recommend the Museumkaart—I paid €60 and racked up easily twice that amount in admission fees. Negative recommendation for the Van Gogh Museum (too overcrowded, impossible to actually look at anything), thumbs up for the Museum of Our Lord in the Attic, the medieval section of the Rijksmuseum, the Portuguese Synagogue, and the Tropenmuseum.

Flowers in the Begijnhof; interior of the Oude Kerk; the most Extra fireplace I have ever seen (at the Rijksmuseum); canals.

And then back to Ireland, where I showed up two weeks earlier than my parents anticipated. Surprise! Dad actually had to make my Mam a mug of tea with a dash of brandy. Whoops?

My final day in Paris for this year: beautiful weather, some good work done on my project, one last baguette from the boulangerie around the corner. It's been such a different experience this year compared to the past. As much as this project needs to be a success for my future career, there's nowhere near the kind of pressure on me that there was when I was writing my dissertation. I got over that hurdle. Everything else is golden. Even this ice cream, sort of:

Passionfruit and raspberry/rosewater from Berthillon's, enjoyed with a good book at a quiet spot on the river wall of the Île de la Cité. But tomorrow, Amsterdam.
