onward

Tomorrow morning we leave for Amsterdam, via airplane that thankfully did not cost more than my bedroom furniture (and for those wondering - we ended up getting to Paris last week on the Eurostar train; it was a bit cheaper plus much more timely than a flight).

Thank you to those readers who are taking the time to sit through what is essentially a 21st century version of the neighbors' vacation slide show. And you don't even get watered-down drinks & pretzels with it.

I'm not sure what kind of Internet access we'll get in the Netherlands (the country's name leaves me dubious). We were awfully lucky to have a free [if weak & spotty] connection at this hotel; London was a Medieval nightmare where we had to deposit pound coins every 29 minutes in the lobby computer (or surreptitiously use the free Wi-Fi at a nearby hotel).


I still have lots of things to tell that you might find thoroughly entertaining, mildly amusing, or downright idiotic, depending on your state of drunkenness level of medication tolerance for boring neighbors. You may want to bring your own pretzels & cocktails.

You will be entirely too busy right? We'll be back to check in with you.

(I'm recuperating from the flu, of all things, post-trip. Crazy fever woman here.)

Dude, aren't there any Starbucks over there? I thought they were like Gaps and Benettons - one on every corner? And what about WIFI at McDonalds? Don't they do that over there?

Those Europeans are SO last decade!

I'd stick around for the stories, even WITHOUT the pretzels and weak drinks.
