Breakfast Suite, Part III: The Coffee Entry


Dutch Word of the Day
overal: everywhere
Er zijn overal!
They’re everywhere!

Reunited and it feels so good. Bye-bye coffeeshops, hello Starbucks. And this Escher-like* take on New York is pretty accurate. As an unofficial LSAT study center for Summer 2007, (Official being New York Public Lie-berry) I love la ‘bucks. But the Manhattan omnipresence is a bit over done.

By the way, Maurits Cornelis Escher was born in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. I was expecting there to be an Escher Museum nearby, but it’s in Den Haag, not Amsterdam. Like the lack of Rem Koolhaus buildings, this was a little artistic disappointment. So was the Rijksmuseum’s partially open state due to renovation. I’ve always liked Netherlandish art. Maybe it’s time for a trip to the Met.
