Saturday morning in Amsterdam, the GPS watch also making a lazy start and delaying me with its “locating satellites” hijinks, even though I’ve been using it here all week without issues.
Ran out through the Jordaan at about 10, zigzagging through towards Driehoekstraat and across the Brouwersgracht, over Marnixstraat and Haarlemmerweg to Westerpark. Through and alongside the Westergasfabriek, past a couple of Saturday morning exercise groups and along the side of the little lake and out of the park by the same entrance. Home along the Brouwersgracht.
