Meeting point

Lars, Larry, Ken & Lady Di arrived on time and met at "The Meeting Point" in Schipol airport.  This is the best idea for locating your travel buddies in a large airport.  You can't miss it because it is a collection of red and white squares that form an interesting structure amidst the airport kiosks.  Roek picked us up in the van and gave us a tour of the high school he and Lars attended, and former neighborhoods.

We spent the day trying to ignore our jet lag and drove to Muiden for lunch where we had a beer and our first uitsmijter (open-face sandwich with bacon, cheese, tomato & egg)  delicious!  After lunch we drove from Muiden (after looking at the castle fortress guarding the water entrance to the town) to Naarden (another old fortified town).  We also saw the house that Lars & Elizabeth lived in before moving to North Carolina.  Finally we returned to our hotel for some much-needed rest.

Hello Fearrington Cyclists, I am enjoying the comments and pictures. Hope you have a great time. Lars, keep Dr. Larry away from the pot shops; he is dangerous enough on the bike as it is. Look forward to reading more of your adventure.
