I spent the morning before Sergio woke up tidying the Airbnb. When he woke up, we headed to Santa Coffee Soho to pick up more coffee and try again to get a better cappuccino. We picked up a more fruity light roast (apparently the other one we had was also a light roast 🤷🏼♀️
The coffee definitely wasn't as good as our first time, and I think they used the beans we bought which, spoiler alert, I don't like as much as the first ones.
We got back in hopes to be ready for them to arrive. I got a text from Hans saying that Nat wasn't doing well so we had to make sure we would be there waiting for them to make things go smoothly.
I finished tidying up and they made it here! We all ate some snacks and Nat and Jug took the day pretty easy, since they were really worn out from the travel.
We also spent some time talking about what days to do certain activities. We ended up going on a short walk to get out of the apartment and to keep the “juggernat” awake.
Going out to eat on your first night is a good idea because it's another activity to keep you awake, so we headed out for tapas in Centro. We tried to go to El Pimpi, as recommended by a friend on line at security in Amsterdam, but it was quite busy so we went to another restaurant in the same square - one that I apparently ate at when I was here 3 years ago!
The food was delicious and filling. Notably, we got pimientos with flakes of salt that were good, and delicious fried white fish bites.
We headed back after successfully staying awake all day to go to bed.20220911: A Slow Sunday
