In The Netherlands: Utrecht and Amsterdam
As soon as I arrived in Utrecht, Diederik took me to a lunch at a very nice restaurant, inside an industrial complex: Zuiver. Both him and the waiter suggested the smoked eel salad, and I must agree, it was delicious.
Then, after a couple of very interesting meetings, he took me to dinner to another very nice restaurant, this time in the colorful and very touristy Red Light District: ANNA, where we had pre-appetizer, appetizer, main course, pre-dessert, and dessert.
Back in the hotel room, I found this interesting “no weed smoking allowed in the room” notice:
The next day I had a meeting at IBM Netherlands. The surprise came after the meeting: outdoors BBQ party, with DJ!
The best thing was that I finally had a chance to try one of the culinary creations of IBM’s Watson Cognitive Computer. It was a “Bengali Butternut BBQ Sauce”. It was definitely different, and delicious. Apparently I was not the only one who liked it!
