I got to A'dam in the afternoon and then Eric and I went to one of the best films I've seen in a loooooong time: 'El secreto de sus ojos' (the secret in their eyes). It's really worth going to, so I hope y'all can see it. For Dutch reviews, click on Films (Eric), under 'Links' (right hand column).
After that we met up with Sjors and Lillan at a restaurant of their choice.
However, when they walked in, they got 'decibelled' by a sound which only 'hundreds' of little, screaming kids can produce, and changed their mind.
They decided that few people could be that 'child-friendly' and took us to a nice restaurant called Zabayon instead click here for menu (also in English). They served some 'alternative' but good food (i.e. creme of corn soup, with a deep fried wonton, filled with goats cheese floating in the middle). The service was very friendly and, more importantly, we had fun.

We 'parked' our bikes and watched a fantastic, outdoor, Live Soul Music concert, together with hundreds of people there and thousands of others who were watching it on tv from the comfort of their homes.
It turned out that we were standing right next to the 'box' where all the interviews were being filmed 'live'! Highlight of that moment were 'The Trammps' (remember them? Disco Inferno, Hold back the night, etc.)
