STARBUCKS IN AMSTERDAM ...

                             

There's only one Starbucks in Amsterdam but, not to worry, I found it.  O.K., I'll admit it, I already knew where it was and I made a beeline for it shortly after my flight landed yesterday afternoon.  You see, the only Starbucks around here is at the airport.  The Dutch aren't so into Starbucks.  Why?  For one thing, their own coffee is very good.  For another, no self-respecting Dutchman would fritter away 10 Euros for a cup of coffee and a piece of pastry ...!
