What a great place for a short visit, the weather was fantastic and the city was beautiful, it's so small that everything was in walking distance. We stayed on a houseboat on one of the smaller canals and the views out of the big windows up and down the canal was wonderful. It only rocked slightly when a boat chugged past, which is just as well as I am not the greatest sailor!
The flower market was great as well, I bought a very interesting seed, it was labelled as a Buddha Palm with instructions to soak in water until it sprouts.
It's the size of a large orange.I googled it when I got home and it is actually called the suicide tree (because the seed is really poisonous) or pong pong tree, I think I prefer the latter. So it will be interesting to see what happens
