Today's blogtember assignment was to go to a coffee shop, order a favorite drink and write about what makes me happy and what makes me sad.
Well, that didn't happen...
First of all, I have a child sleeping upstairs, and I don't think it would be a great idea to leave him alone.
Secondly, I work at an espresso bar and will be heading there this evening for a shift,
that's enough coffee for one day me thinks.
But I can tell you this:
Did you know that in Holland a coffee shop is something totally different than a coffee shop in the USA or Canada? I bet you could get coffee at these places if you really wanted to, but the main product at the dutch coffee shops is cannabis and other 'soft' drugs. Yeah.
I have no idea why they're called coffee shops, but if you're ever travelling to Holland now you know that a 'coffee shop' is not a place to get coffee.
Instead look for an espresso bar or a café, that's where you want to be if you're looking for a cup of joe.
