The Mrs. is on an airplane at Dulles right now, preparing to take off for London and thence to Milan. She'll be touring a group of American teachers over to Venice and back, at which time she'll fly back to London and thence to Amsterdam, where we'll hook up at Rembrandt Square next Saturday evening. I miss her already.
One more week and I'll be back in Europe for the first time in six years. Unbelievable that it's been so long, and very out of character. I'm losing my status as a member of Rick Steves' "Europe Through the Backdoor" club*. I hope to hit Rotterdam, The Hague, and Haarlem--and, weather and time permitting, perhaps a jaunt down to Belgium?
*Oh, don't even.
