Yesterday we had dinner at an Indonesian restaurant called Kartika.
If you read my blog yesterday, you know that the rain was pouring down when we entered this small restaurant at about 4:15 pm. We were hungry after our train trip to Amsterdam, dizzying walk/tour through the Late Rembrandt exhibit in the Rijksmuseum, and brisk walk dodging the cars, bicyclists, and raindrops from the museum to the restaurant.
The kind owner would not ("Nay, Mijnheer") allow us to sit and wait for the restaurant to open at 5:00 pm, so we went next door to Starbucks for coffee/ hot chocolate.
Most folks I know would have found another place to eat, but we waited patiently at Starbucks and went back to eat Indonesian at 5:00.
