Amsterdam - From the Jewish Quarter to the Albert Cuypmarkt

On my final day in Amsterdam, I managed to carve out time for a walk from the Jewish Quarter (Plantage) to the Albert Cuypmarkt.
I spotted sculptures made from bits of junkyard scrap near the zoo.
Beautiful flowers graced the spring day.
The hoisting bars on the homes in the area seemed to salute as I walked past.
I loved these juxtapositions of flowers and canals.  It is quintessential Amsterdam.
I wound my way through the city streets of Amsterdam toward Albert Cuypmarkt.
En route, I passed this pub and my attention was drawn to the white cat sitting on the counter.  Fancy a pint?
The Albert Cuypmarkt spans several city blocks and you can find almost anything you might be looking for here.
I needed a new watch band and I'd been keeping an eye out for something for a few weeks.  Sure enough, I found something nice and in my price range at this Albert Cuypmarkt.
I took a stroll through the market doing a bit of people watching en route.
I finished perusing the market and veered down a side street in search of some lunch.
Warung Marlon, a 'hole in the wall' Indonesian place was recommended to me and I soon found myself ensconced at a table near the counter.
A huge plate of chicken and rice was put before me... was served up with some 'blow-your-head-off' hot sauce.  Yum...
I also tried their signature deep fried banana satay with homemade peanut sauce.  The sauce was amazing - very thick, nutty, and spicy.  They actually sold it by the bucket.  Too bad I wasn't checking a bag or I would have considered taking some home.
I decided to walk off lunch with a bit of a walk as Sarphatipark was nearby.
Baby coots were frolicking on the pond in the park.
I did a loop of the park admiring the lush greenery.
I walked back toward Amsterdam Centraal.  En route, I discovered that the neighborhood near Albert Cuypmarkt hosts an outpost of the Red Light District.  I accidentally walked down one street and noticed lights and sexy ladies standing in the window.  They mostly left me alone but I noticed one of the ladies beckoning to a lad walking past.  He definitely went in for a closer look ;-)
On to our brewery of the highlights of this short trip to Amsterdam.
