Yesterday Wendy kept reminding all of us we had a very big day today. I know Wendy got a huge day today with her mother's birthday, catering and making sure everybody gets to kite surfing and pramfahren in time. Me on the other hand - I don't really have a lot on the agenda. I need to sleep for a bit and then go to see the city of
My extensive research of what there is to see in
There are some nice sites in
The small centre of town actually got several nice old buildings along the canals. Including the cities very own leaning tower. They must have used the same architect as they did in
I walk around town and even manage to help some Dutch find their way to the centre in their car - they are already in the centre of town - small place indeed.
I get back to the hotel and the people who are supposed to go kite surfing is still at the hotel. Hence I tag along and drive out to the kite surfing place with Wendy.
We get back from the prahmfahren and kite surfing at around 6.45 hence we got plenty of time to relax before the late diner at 7 at Humphreys. At 7 people start to show up in the restaurant. Well Wendy gets there at 7 - and nobody else is anywhere close to the restaurant.
7.05 Wendy is still alone in the restaurant and we are not ready to leave the hotel.
7.10 Wendy still alone in the restaurant and we start to expect to hear from Wendy soon - calling to check up on us.
still alone in the restaurant but by now she has called half the phones in
7.20-25 Wendy is joined by Joost at first soon followed by Narrie and Wilco. A big group arrives around 7.30 and Wendy finally got most of her kids gathered around the place so she won't have to be worried anymore.
Diner is a
deal with a 3 course menu with free drinks until they serve the dessert. The
restaurant is so bloody hot that the amount of free drinks to survive the heat
is pretty big. It is always amusing to watch the general confusion when the
waiters try to serve a meal to 40 people. It always takes forever to get the
right meal to the right person. Today is no exception - it is a bit chaotic
when the starter arrive, it is a bit chaotic when the main arrive - and when
the dessert finally arrive it is dropped on the flour.
end of dinner it is time to pay the bill - or at least give it a very good
shot. Money is changing hand being handed over and change going back. Will it
ever be sorted out - well it could take a long time. But it doesn't it goes
more smoothly than you could expect and we are of to a bar somewhere in town. More
beers and no major incidences in that place - hence we need to go somewhere
else to get something to write about - but either I don't see all the really
exiting stuff or nothing major happen in the second place either before I head
