This morning I took Churchill out for his morning walk, as usual. Our apartment is in a set of 3 buildings that are former warehouses right on the waterfront. Behind them is a long grassy area, and a fietspad (bike path) running down the middle of it. I was standing in the cold, waiting patiently for Churchill to do his business, when I hear quite a commotion behind me. I turn, and see something rather unusual. First, a bright yellow “velomobile” was coming down the fietspad. If you don’t know what a velomobile is, here’s a picture from Wikipedia:
This, in itself, is quite unusual. What made it even more odd was that there was a small scooter right behind it, with 2 passengers, both shouting and shaking their fists in the air at the velomobile. Churchill, of course, chose this exact moment to poop (on the sidewalk no less).
Just another morning in Amsterdam.
