Vacation 2016 - Day 11 - 7/24/2016
In the morning, we had our last breakfast on the Lofn, disembarked and went out to the hotel to check in.
Spent the morning walking and shopping throughout the area.
Ended up for lunch at the Brouwerij de Prael - Oudezijds Voorburgwal 30. They had actually moved, and their previous location is a now beer store, operated by them I believe.
Had a delicious lunch and tried fights of the

Did some more shopping then went back to the hotel. My plan was to stop in at a namesake bar, then dinner. The bar - Café Belgique - was where the name Club Belgique came from, as a beer club. Mica was a wonderful host, and the place was unchanged from years ago.
