SAS #5 and Wooden Shoes

Oct 30, 2011 by

The fact that I was in Leiden on an incredibly sunny weekend was a blessing.
The fact that there were nice people waiting for me there, poetry all over the buildings, bikes decorating the city, the sounds of water everywhere and plenty of delicious food to eat also made the trip easy to enjoy.
As another way to enjoy all that the Netherlands has to offer, Achilles and I were discussing the possibility of me purchasing some custom wooden shoes while I was there. Unfortunately, I ended up running out of time and didn’t get them.
Achilles’ comment on those wooden shoes was that “your feet smell like hell after. It’s just wood and feet juice.”
Somehow, I’m still tempted to one day own custom wooden shoes from the Netherlands.
