I'm back...VIII

It took some fiddling, but I did succeed in having Blogit accept some of my photos! So here are a few from the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, a name far too long for my tastes – I’ll just call it the ‘Elbphil’… The first one is a view of the Plaza. (And if you don’t know what that is you’ll need to take a... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm back...VII

Having solved the problem of uploading my photos, I thought I might as well continue regaling you with a few more snippets of the visit to my friends in Hamburg. I had written things up and was ready to insert the pics, but alas, it didn’t quite work out that way; Blogit doesn’t like my photos –... Sign in to see full entry.

A crazy encounter…

What would you think if someone told you that you were invading his bedroom as you went about your business? Well, it happened to me yesterday! I was on my way to talk to my buddy Jose’s colleague about my computer problems (yeah, Kabu and Wiley aren’t the only ones with computer issues; maybe... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm back...VI

Well, I am, and I was going to write a bit more and show you some pics - without the pics there really isn't much. Had I gone to Paris, as my Canadian friend had urged me, maybe I would have had a lot of exciting things to write about! Even before the election it was getting a bit hairy there, and...

I’m back…V

L and I go way back – J came later. Among other things it involved a lot of sailing. Some of you may remember my tales of sailing in Wales, out of Barmouth, and in the Solent out of Lymington, much of it involving racing. Great fun –even if we never won. So there was a lot of reminiscing… In those... Sign in to see full entry.

Just in time for Easter…

This happened a few days ago… “That cat has been out there for a while, looking at something,” my LSW said. “That cat” is not one of ours, who are not allowed to go outside, but a black-and-white neighborhood prowler who frequently drops by to inspect the bird feeders. I looked out, and there she... Sign in to see full entry.

I’m back…IV

As European cities go, Hamburg is a fairly young place. While there was a settlement for quite a while before that, it was ‘incorporated’ only in the year 808 A.D. by Charlemagne. Among other things he ordered a castle (a ‘burg’) to be built there, and the ‘Ham’ bit has nothing to do with what you... Sign in to see full entry.

What can I tell you about Amsterdam ’s Rijksmuseum? It ranks with all the world’s great museums. It holds an unrivalled collection of paintings by Dutch and Flemish masters, among them Rembrandt’s famous Night Watch, which has its own room. Photographs simply cannot convey the power of that...

I’m back…II

Schiphol, Amsterdam ’s airport, was once among the world’s largest, though it’s been passed by many others now. But it’s still impressive, very well laid out and probably as pleasant as an airport can be. Beside the ubiquitous array of stores with everything from diamonds to knick-knacks there are...

I’m back…

Well, sort of – at least the body seems to be… And y’all want to know, ‘ Where did you go?’ ‘ How did it go?’ ‘ What did you do?’ Good questions… It’s impossible for me to give you a blow-by-blow, but there will be snippets and ‘impressions’ – things that occurred to me in the course of this trip;...
