More exploring 

Another change of location.  Back in Amsterdam this morning, back to 6am starts.

Up without too much grumbling and out into a bright and warm morning.  Not much more than a stumble around the streets of Frederik Hendrikbuurt – over Nassaukade, before Van Haalstraat.  I’m enjoying these runs through the inner suburbs of the city, seeing parts I’ve paid no attention to before.

5km, 28:18.

1300km up, 713km remaining.
