Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig
I can't believe how fast the last week went by. We had a fantastic time, and I'll probably spend many hours over the next couple of days putting all the photos up on Flickr. It's so much fun to go back through everything that we did and relive it. So be warned: over the next day or two, an extremely long post or two about what I've been up to for the past week will show up here. For now, here are some basic things to whet your appetite: 1.) If you walk around early enough in the morning in Amsterdam, you will see a puddle of vomit on the ground somewhere. 2.) French protests are a great place to take pictures of people dressed up as vikings. They are also a good place to get pictures of riot police. 3.) The top of the Eiffel Tower is really freaking high off the ground. 4.) When you're on an airplane, it's dark outside, you hit turbulance while going through a cloud - and this causes the plane's outside lights to flash madly as they reflect off the cloud - and the guy behind you yells "This is it! We're Going Down! Hold on Everyone!" etc, you will feel an urge to turn around and smash him in the mouth with your digital camera. DO NOT DO IT. Even as he starts The Final Countdown to landing (and is wrong), remember that airport security will eventually find you.
