I haven't seen my friend Anouk in a while, so we finally made plans to catch up in The Hague, where she moved to a couple of months ago. We had dinner at a Vietnamese place, called 'Little V'. The food was alright, but not quite authentic Vietnamese. Unlike NYC (sigh...), there is a serious lack of real good Vietnamese restaurants in Amsterdam (or NL for that matter). I had fun in the Hague, it was really great to see Anouk again and I got a chance to take a good walk in the city.
