Val said she had a surprise for me, Friday.
We took a train north, got off at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and now I am typing this in Manchester, northern England, after a day with Val and our wonderful host Paula.
And I honestly had no clue that we were going to fly!
We went to explore the canals in the city and I must say they put the canals in London in the shade...
'See' you all Sunday evening.
Oh, the concrete thing with the reflectors on it is a park bench. Erik-Jan had the size just right.
The bench seen from a different angle, the grass and the tree convey a sense of proportion. The retroflectors are useful because it sits just beside a road, facing the river. Nice view from there.
