That will be a problem for me. Nay... do not publish any photos conatining my identifyable image, as I mentioned when we were in De Kuil. Where I live is not the land of the free.

Once again, another excellent field report from the front lines.

Looking forward to coming reports.

A great way to start my day reading these.... and reading these intensifies the scheming about that "next trip".

Nice to read your report.

Yes, life does seem dull and boring upon re-entry back into everyday daily life.

Indeed, visiting Amsterdam can be habit forming.

Always tough to lose a canine companion. It simply does not feel "right" not having a dog around... when coming home, when dropping some food in the kitchen floor, and mostly, walking in the woods...... feel "naked" without good dog company. Lately, the thoughts of getting a pup have been crossing m...

Trip Conclusion, US Customs Interrogation & Comments

Our last full day, Monday, was "routine"..... pretty much visiting coffee shops. It started in Coffeeshop Central, and as we sat there, a pleasant thirty something Dutch woman entered, gave me a bright smile, and sat at the bar. While Hebe and I were watching the world go by having our morning smoke...

A Visit to Freisland

Another fine sunny morning.

The day began at Central coffee shop, for a morning smoke. We next extracted some ...

Last year when I was there at Manhattan Pizza, I noticed that the place was swathed in pictures of the WTC to the point where it seemed like wallpaper.

Woke feeling very unrested. Felt like shit, as they say. The jet lag rears it's ugly head.

A New Pilgrimage

The gods must be very pleased.... arrived to a rare sunny, cloudless sky. A first for me, and a sign from the gods.

Once this severe jet lag disapates, will commence posting observations on Holland from a dumb american tourist.
