The train from Haarlem dropped us off in the western part of Amsterdam where we'd be staying. The hotel prices here were much more reasonable than those in the city centre. We walked a good 20-30 minutes from the train station to our hotel. It was worth it though to see these amazing oystercatchers along the way.
Our route also paralleled some fine canals ringed in spring greenery.
WestCord Art Hotel and we could immediately see why it was given this name.
We walked past Padi, an Indonesian Restaurant, and were drawn in.
The place was a bit of a 'hole in the wall' but there were lots of folks eating there.
Overall, we're glad we gave Padi a chance. The meal was a nice way to end a long photo safari walk through the western part of Amsterdam.
