I have a lifelong love affair with coffee. That wonderful drink and I have been together for more than 58 years now. Well, no doubt it hasn’t been quite that long, although a family joke has it that I drank coffee before I had my first taste of breast milk. I do believe the latter won out for a while. But I have been drinking coffee from a very early age, and the habit has stayed with me for all this time.
Standing on top of the A’DAM tower — enjoying the A’DAM Lookout observation deck — I noticed, not for the first time, how tall the Westerkerk church building is in relation to the rest of the houses in downtown Amsterdam.
