‘’She was my best friend. We shared the same love for music. Every year we would visit the same concert. A concert, that takes place right in front of the Pulitzer Amsterdam. On the day of the concert, boats gather on the canal, right in front the hotel and at night a magical event occurs. Last year, not too long before the concert my friend was diagnosed with cancer. She did not miss a single concert but last year she passed away right before the concert. It broke my heart. A few days before the concert I was walking by the hotel when all of a sudden I saw a beautiful elegant woman staring at the water. She was wearing a beautiful dress. We started to talk and she said how she loved the water and the canals. I told her that in few days something even more magical would happen. I told here about the concert and I told her that if she wanted to, she could watch the concert from my boat. She turned around and said; ''I would love to but I am the violinist of the evening.'' After she said that we fell into each other’s arms and we hugged. When I heard her play during the concert, I could not stop crying. She played like an angel. Some might call it childish but that night my best friend was there. She was there with me, enjoying the concert while she was sitting on her little cloud.'' @debrabarraud#Repost@humansofamsterdam
''Grandma was the first one in her family to not have an arranged marriage. She was also the first one who, at the age of 25 immigrated from Suriname to Amsterdam with her four little children. She studied hard and she always worked and provided for her family. When her kids grew up, she travelled the world all by herself. She and my mum taught me how to be independent and how to handle money. Because of those skills I was able to pay for my own studies and to save up money. I have always made sure to not spend it on nonsense, instead I saved it. Just like grandma, I saved it so I was able to travel the world.''

That time when Jonsi's dad stopped by with some homemade medicinal schnapps. Took some photos for @amuselife at Fischer, an incredible store in Reykjavik where Jonsi and his sister's make and sell perfume, tea and so much more.

Happy Friday everyone!!
After the craziness this week (see previous post), looking fwd to a calm weekend at home. We tried to plan a last-minute getaway and were deciding between Mexico City and skiing in NH. Decided it was too stressful to try and plan a full Mexico City wknd on short notice, and it was way too cold for me to ski (-12C/11F). So we’re staying put! What are you guys up to this weekend? 💋
