Native?

Nice report, MM, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and hanging out with you guys as well :-). I think I told LH the shake I had at Amnesia was like "someone had microwaved a half gallon of chocolate ice cream and stuffed it into a glass". Yum. It was really, really refreshing to see such happy folks who ...

Thanks, X, if I were living any larger I'd need my own time zone. I, as well, hope I'm still here in December :-). Looking forward to chapter IV.

Great weather and a CityMundo gem

Arrived 3 weeks ago in this most fabulous city, have only seen 1 day of rain...outstanding, any time of the year. I just wanted to post a quick (un-solicited) note regarding CityMundo L01312. This is a great place, right by a tram 1 stop, near the park and a 20 minute walk from Leidesplein if it get...

April Visit - a lovely weekend

I left Betty Boop after finishing my 1st days trip report, and made my way back towards Leidesplein and Rookies for a nightcap. Even though it was late, it was nice enough to sit outside, so I took advantage of the cloudless evening and nice breeze, grabbed a seat and enjoyed the groovin' music, lau...

April visit

Trip started out on a positive note as the shuttle driver saw me parking and waited for me to grab my stuff, walk over to the stop, etc. The line at security was even longer than last time, I mean it was huge, but moved nicely. I initially thought I'd have to go to the dreaded ticket window at the a...

Great read again, Unclefester.

I had no idea I hadn't smoked it all. After laughing,...

macro

LTD, usually a macro setting on a camera locks the focus at a very short distance so you can take close-ups of flowers, plants (a-hem) and other objects that the camera might not be able to focus on otherwsie. Note that not all cameras have this feature, though.

Hope that helps.
