Today we had an appointment with Bas at the Taxi-stand close to Central station. We were a little bit late so I wanted to call Bas, but no one had his phone number. So I called Anna, but she was not there yet. Another try: called Jorien, but also a message I will be late. Now I new I don't have to call somebody, because a lot of us are late. From us I could understand it... we went to bed this morning at 5 am. Then Mike called me where we were. I could tell him that we are in the bus and will be there in 5 minutes. And we were! Not many people there so time to talk to some other TravBuddies and waiting for the rest. A lot didn't appear so finally we left after 11 am. The target was "Museumplein" Whilst walking we were having fun and stopped at a bar for a drink, took a group picture and walked on.

But it took a long time to get closer to the Museumplein. I got a lot of calls from others where we were. They walked straight to the museumplein and were waiting for us. It were Christian, Jessica, Ket, Johan and later also Carolina. Our group decided NOT to go to there because it was very crowdy. But 5 of us wanted to go there and left the group. We stopped at Leidscheplein and found there Jessica and Ket. Then 2 more came to us from the big group and we finally arrived at Museumplein. But there were SO MANY people, we couldn't get a place to go. Then 2 girls were very tired and couldn't walk anymore. They want to go home, so I went with them, because we all had to go to the hostel to pick up our stuff. We took the Tram to Zeeburg, got our stuff and took the bus to CS. Then we heard that there are no trains going to and from CS, because some idiots are walking on the tracks. How to get home?
We asked around and the best way to leave was to use the subway to Amsterdam-South. We did that without buying a ticket ;) and there we could take a train. We said goodbye to Annouska and Mandy and I took the train to Arnhem. Mandy left me at Rheden station and I had still 40 minutes to go. Finally at 20:35 I was at home again.
It was a little chaotic this day but we had fun. I still feel sorry that I did not meet Carolina, Christian and Johan. We have to meet another time.
