Ah, I went in here to buy some postcards and stamps. And there is a nice story to tell.

I went inside, a few customers or neighbours were chatting with the people behind the counter. There wasn't a real queue. But to be safe and not wanting to jump the queue, I stood a few feet behind someone. Then the salesperson told me to hand her my postcards. So I told her I thought someone else was before me. She said yes, but the other person was a friend and she could wait. "We shouldn't let a tourist wait because your time in Amsterdam is precious."

How nice is that??

I told her that is OK, I was there for over a week and there was no huge rush. But she insisted on serving me first, and so did the lady in front of me.

So the Dutch people are really very friendly folks.
