It's a pretty bad weather year for Amsterdam this summer. It really isn't much better than when I came early in March 2005. Hopefully it is better in NJ because I'm coming home!

Right now I should be in Thailand, but alas it was not meant to be. I got to the airport and was told I was not on the flight and to add insult to injury they were telling me that I needed to go to the embassy to replace my passport because after washing it doesn't look so good anymore.Its sparkly clean! but I was afraid to run it through the dryer's "Wrinkle Free" cycle therefore it's a bit wrinkly.

So after some thought I decided that I didn't really want to have passport problems through S.E. Asia and I also didn't really want to spend another two weeks here while a new passport was issued.

So I booked a flight home. Tomorrow to be exact. I'll arrive in Philly at 2:45pm and catch a bus to A.C.

So one more day here in Amsterdam and back with you all to enjoy the last two weeks of summer.

For all those interested: courtesy of Art- there are according to Wikipedia 700,000 bikes in Amsterdam.
