O meu primeiro dia em Amesterdão começou devagar. Depois de um delicioso jantar de boas-vindas na noite anterior, dormi que nem um bebé, acordei mais tarde do que devia e demorei um pouco a recuperar o ritmo. Acabei por sair de casa já depois das 15:00 e, depois de um breve passeio pelo centro da cidade, a melhor solução foi mesmo fazer um passeio de barco pelos canais, o que provou ser uma óptima ideia!  

My first day in Amsterdam started slowly. After a delicious welcoming dinner the night before, I slept like a baby, woke up later than I should and took some time to pick up the pace. I ended up leaving the house after 3 p.m. and, after a short walk through the city center, the best solution was to go on a boat tour through the cannals, which proved to be great idea!

Antes de apanhar o comboio para Amesterdão, ainda tive tempo de dar uma volta pela Grand Place e visitar as Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, que recomendo vivamente. Bruxelas mostrou-me, como tantos outros sítios que já visitei, que é bom não ter expectativas. Quando assim é, aumentamos as possibilidades de sermos surpreendidos pela positiva, e em Bruxelas isso aconteceu por várias vezes! E agora, prontos para Amesterdão?

Before catching the train to Amsterdam, I still had time to walk around the Grand Place and visit the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, that I strongly recommend. Brussels showed me, like many other places I've been to, that it's good not to have expectations. When you do that, you really increase the possibilities of being surprised in a good way, and in Brussels that happened many times! And now, are you ready for Amesterdam?

Ao fim do dia, depois dos autocarros de turistas terem partido, nós deixámo-nos ficar, andámos pelas ruas a gozar o lusco-fusco e, no caminho de volta para a estação de comboio, passámos numa rua onde  em todas as janelas estavam afixadas canções de Jacques Brel. Foi difícil ir embora, mas sei que hei-de voltar a Bruges.

At the end of the day, after the buses of turists went away, we stayed a little longer, walked the streets enjoying the dusk and, on the way back to the train station, we passed by a street where all the windows displayed lyrics by Jacques Brel. It was hard to leave, but I'm sure I'll be back in Bruges.
