I made it! Home at last! And finally finding the mental energy to sit down and write something.
It was a wonderful trip. I will post photos later and write more. Amersfoort is a wonderful place. I want to see much more of the city another time. This coffee place was hands-down my favorite place to get a nice cup. We went there twice. I could have been happy going there every single day.
Right now I need to get to the museum. Apparently, the roof leaked badly during the last big rain storm. We lost quite a bit of stuff in our library. Thanks to the city for being idiots about our roof.
There are a myriads of other challenges too that I cannot go into here. Let’s just say I was fortunate that I did NOT have to have a special meeting on Saturday to deal with something big. That was postponed until today.
Immediately after clearing US Customs and security re-check in Minneapolis, we were greeted with the news about the horrific events in Paris. Every TV monitor in the airport was turned to the news. Every passenger who had time to wait was standing there trying to make sense of what happened there. That made me even more anxious to just get home and be away from airports.
The gate next to mine was a plane departing for Paris. Let’s just say those passengers looked very concerned. I have no idea when France actually closed its airports. I would not have wanted to be flying with such uncertainty.
