Thank you, Vindesh, for your lively, vivid description of your family visit. We hope to welcome you again soon! Just one word of caution: be careful when entering the gate with your lovely daughter in the bakfiets. The downwards slope is steep!

Spot on, Remy. As we always say: at Wester-Amstel you are in the middle of the country side, in the middle of Amsterdam!
