Kites on grass
We drive to
the kite surfing place in Wendy's car. On the way she asks me if I am nervous
about driving with a woman driver without her drivers licence. She claims she
has only misplaced her licence. But on the other hand she continuously talks
about being flashed by speed cameras when she is driving around Friesland - so maybe she got the licence confiscated
because of speeding? Anyways I say no.
close to the kite surfing place - but the lead car turns in at a farm house.
This seems a bit odd - kite surfing at a farm house. It turns out we made a
wrong turn and we drive out on the road again for another 100 meters or so. Then
we turn out into a grass field.
A crass field? No water close by - sure you can
see a bridge in the distance but still - how can you do kite surfing here - on
Kites on grass - where is the water?
It turn out
this is the place - the introduction to kite surfing is actually on land and
not on the water. This is somewhat of a setback to my plan of taking photos of
people falling dramatically in the water. The effects on land are not quite the
We can only
watch for a little while because Wendy got a busy schedule for the day. She needs
to bring a lot of stuff Rowena has bought back to her place and do more
shopping. So Devika and I go back to Wendy's apartment to put some of the stuff
in the fridge. The fridge is pretty full already with the stuff Wendy has
And Rowena have got a lot more cheese and meat - hence panic
arrives something need to be done quickly stuff is being taken out of the
fridge and at the same time Wendy want to be the perfect host and offer Devika
and me something to drink. Well at least that also free up some space in the
fridge. With all the stuff that need to go into the fridge we have probably got
enough to feed the entire Frisian navy the next day but Wendy still wants to
buy some more stuff - but Devika
convince her that it is not necessary. Wendy still needs to check TB and to get
an address and answer a couple of mail. Then it is of to the Eden hotel.

Friesland have made Wendy scared of bridges going up in front of her when she
tries to drive through the town and we are in a hurry to get to Eden in time
for the departure to the Pramfarhen.
Well Wendy manages to find a route without
bridges - unfortunately it is three or four times as long as the route with
bridges. To make things even worse we get stocked behind a car going way under
the speed limit. 2ks under at least. The cars horn is engaged without any
success instead Wendy decide to turn right at the first corner - and the car
turns having 2-3 wheels on the ground at all times. I begin to wonder how Wendy
actually lost her drivers licence - the story about just misplacing it seems
ever less plausible. With seconds to spare we get to the parking lot at the train
station next to the Eden
hotel and walk over to pick up the other people going pramfahren.
