Tuesday, May 6 – Terneuzen to Amsterdam
We left Terneuzen early this morning. The drive is several hours and Edwin had to go to work after he dropped us at our airport hotel. Although it looked like the hotel was hiding because of road construction, he figured out how to get us where we needed to go and by 11:00 a.m., he was back on the road and we were checking in.
Jet lag and joy have exhausted us, so we dragged our Vanderbilt-like luggage to the room and then returned to the lobby area and the coffee shop. Our breakfast the past few days had been Mario’s wonderful bread, but for some reason, we were ready for lunch. We both ordered the “goulash soup” which turned out to be a spicy beef vegetable soup accompanied by the inevitable bread and butter. This combination hit the spot and we returned to the room for a long-overdue nap. Sorry, Edwin, but you wore the old people out.
We woke in time for dinner and returned to the coffee shop/restaurant. MA had a very spicy, almost Asian, vegetarian pasta dish and David had “crispy vegetarian sausage” was pretty much the same as the vegetarian cutlet MA gets on HAL ships. We were both happy with our meal and returned to the room to play catch up on the electronics and go back to sleep.
Tomorrow – Amsterdam, again
