I arrived in Amsterdam at 8:30, and made my way through the terminal, passport control, baggage claim, and customs in just an hour. Erno was waiting to pick me up, and he hauled a very tired Howard from Amsterdam down to The Hague, roughly 40km to the southwest.
I bathed, changed clothes, and took a quick nap, and then hooked up with Eric from BrainStorm, who has been to the store in Amsterdam that sells New Rock boots. Unfortunately, we were both far too tired for a shopping adventure, so we wandered around a tiny slice of The Hague for an hour.
I doubt there will be another chance to get into Amsterdam. Oh well. It looks like my next opportunity will be late September in Las Vegas. On THAT trip I’ll have my car, the address of the store, and a city I’m fairly familiar with — all good conditions for a shopping trip.
Anyway, that recounting pretty much takes us to now, because after wandering around I took another nap, learned wireless was working, and came down to get my internet fix.
