October in Amsterdam:

Yesterday, I went to the Muziekgebouw aan t'IJ to see the symphony. It was quite enjoyable. The leaves of trees are starting to morph color, here in Amsterdam. They're dropping to the ground, one by one. People are pulling out the jackets and scarves. And the nights are getting longer. The olliebollen stands are popping back up around town. And soon, the holidays will be here–again. Last year I was puzzled and confused by all the new seasonal traditions I stumbled upon the the Netherlands. This year, I couldn't look forward to them any more than I already do.
