We arrived in Dam Square only to find out Ket and gang weren't there yet! LOL. They were supposed to be on their way when we were headed to get Julie...Ket is like a woman, always fashionably late! :D We decided since it was so freakin cold to partake in some hot coffee at a bar right in the square. Brett called them to say where'd we be and off we went to warm up a bit. I ended up going for gluwhin once I found out they had it...that was my new favorite beverage of the trip. Hot mulled wine...YEAH BABY!
After a bit, Ket and the gang began to arrive - OMG..I got to meet my JC and Aioh! I was so happy!! I had been waiting most of the year to meet this crazy guy and I remember him traveling with Aioh and taking pics of Pooh Bears along the way - she must have thought he was crazy (well, she probably KNOWS that!).
One thing we realized upon seeing Ket right away is he was not feeling well. He was all bundled up and said he was sick. Poor Kitty Ket! More of the gang arrived and then Ivo, Melissa's boyfriend came and rounded the gang up to go back to a bar they were hanging out in. OMG..this bar was crooked! Yes, crooked...literally! It was a small house on the water and it was leaning - it was AWESOME! We went upstairs and ended up pretty much having the whole floor to ourselves. It was perfect.
Since they had stopped serving at the bar upstairs (probably how we got lucky to have the place to ourselves..hee hee) Brett offered to get drinks for people.
Some of us were still starving since we had not eaten since Brett and James' breakfast and Ket also wanted to get food since he felt so sick. We stopped at the ATM, wandered through the Red Light District when we ended up an an Argentin restaurant called Tango. OMG...we tried their signature drink, Tango and it was yummy - was great to photograph too! LOL. Brett and I split a couple things and then we wanted to hurry and get to the bar since it was nearing 11pm.
