Ejo #34 – TEEC: Day 17 (Chucking A Sickie In Amsterdam)

It’s been brewing in the background for a few days. A tickle in the throat, a sneeze here and there, a runny nose (I don’t want to name names, but let’s call it The Rachel Syndrome). And this morning, it developed into a full blown cold. Booooo! Who likes getting sick when they’re on holiday? Not me. Luckily we’re staying in a very cosy apartment which is very conducive to snuggling up on the couch and watching DVDs. We did manage to get out of the house for a morning coffee and brekky at my favourite cafe, called Latei.

My favourite cafe in Amsterdam. I wrote my best short story here in February 2011 amidst several coffees and a number of cheesy goodness eggs!

You have NO idea how good this cheese omelette tastes. You can’t even BEGIN to imagine.

I discovered this really great cafe when I was here in February last year. It makes really good coffee and FABULOUS cheese omelettes. It’s quirky and cool and the antithesis of every coffee chain that spews branches all over Dubai. So we ventured out this morning for coffee and eggs, also grabbing some chips “met” (which means “with” mayo – Dutchie style) before heading home with a medicinal bottle of port. Not a bad way to spend a sick day!

“Friet Met” (which mean “chips with mayonnaise”). Fabulous comfort food.
