This tour with Lee in the Pijp district in Amsterdam was like walking around on a slow morning with a good friend, stopping and looking at things that interested you. Any tour that starts with street art has got to be good. Lee had a perfect laid back attitude for this outing and did well in the market in which most of the stalls hadn't shown up. She explained Dutch fast food in a good light (I lived there for 5 years and really know about it) and I liked that she bought a gooey stroopwaffel and tried to eat it with one hand. This is an excellent tour for a 'go with the flow' morning (my time) and I plan on taking it again in the summer when all the market stalls are there.
