Daydreaming About Dutch Canals on the Banks of the St. Lawrence

We're settling into a really nice Saturday morning routine up here on Montréal's South Shore: I hop on my bike or walk up to la tabagie, pick up copies of The Globe and Mail and Le Devoir, and we read the papers together over a phenomenal breakfast (I make the coffee and he makes incredible (h)egg things).

There were two articles about The Netherlands in last week's Globe and Mail, one in the Travel section and the other in Books, and they both got me thinking (again) about saving my gulden to see Amsterdam one day (or some day sooner).
