I am glad you are keeping up the scientific research that is so essential to channelite well-being! Thanks for the reports Hebe - perhaps was it something religious you attended/indulged in/participated in this Sunday lol? Are the orange Hare Krishnas still going? Amyone can join in with them, or so...

Lovely pics StemsnSeeds. I have only been once in the fall and I resolved to go again at that time - your pics reminded me why. Oh well, maybe next year!

Wonderful stuff robtfink. An impressive potted history of a culture which has become so admired. Very erudite too! I hope you get around to writing more (I didn't).

Shopping, mooching about, hanging in coffeeshops, changing plans, watching the world go by, eating, sleeping - warm, familiar stuff, and like Dickens said, it's the simple things that matter. You bring it all back - thanks!

LastHamlet, you take the yellow jersey. Famous Hamlet would have been proud of you for overcoming your loss and going back in such style!

A two gram joint of Blueberry?? We had one Blueberry joint between us, and that had tobacco mixed in - and after only a few puffs we were well above the levels we are used to! Great report LH - thanks for sharing so much with us.

The Guy at the Station

(An extract from a trip report which doesn't yet exist ) Last Thursday morning, our third day of our sixth visit, and a trip to Haarlem. Once again we are up late, too late for Hotel breakfast. A couple of j's of Blueberry to colour the daylight. We are not used to quality smoke - illegal low grade ...

Any coffeeshop would do for me this Monday night. Thank you for rubbing it in, Nogbin of the planet Nogbin!

Michaelo - this is just to let you know that your reports were just delicious so cool, Kuil, even, - if only that rhymed - and made a lot more sense than the one about the red wheelbarrow. Next time I'm stoned and feel like writing poetry and stuff in a coffee shop or a brown bar I will think of you...

btw GT, the chocolate shop you were directed to I think is in Staalstrat - runs from the Doelen Hotel/Kloveniersburgwal to Waterlooplein.

GT, thanks for this. It is of special interest to me as I am booked into the same hotel next month- I was going to skip the 20 euro breakfasts until I read your reports! I am very glad you are finding the time to write them - and the longer, the more detailed, the better!

pedantry

It's the moral condemnation here that is so greatly unjust - not 'being searched'.

Great report, great writing, great injustice that you were treated that way. I have been reading your reports for ... well literally years ... and when they reach their end I feel a bat's squeak of disappointment. Thank you.

dog days numbered

thanks once again for the great report - right up to your usual high standards despite the dog news. Just lost my own 16 year old labrador, so I know what you are going through. If the vet says she's OK, that's all you need. Keep 'em coming.
