Eindhoven: A Dutch Treat

Just got back from a short stay in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. It may not be as big as Amsterdam, but it is not without its charm.

Second, they make stroopwafels in the Netherlands! You can just walk into any corner store and buy them:


What could be better? Nicci sure likes them:
