Waterfight in Edam

Edam, Netherlands
July 19, 2003

< < previous | next > >

We fled Amsterdam in a rented Ford Fiesta, with all the usual hassles that come with renting a car in a foreign country ("This is not a confirmation, sir; this is a voucher...") and tooled on up to Edam, as in cheese. It was hot, too hot for cheese, so we managed a water fight along the canal instead.

After, we drove a few hours south to den Bosch, which I'd seen with the mini-MBA folks back in May -- a great little town for sightseeing and cafe sitting. We had intended to find a hotel around there, or near Aachen, but a string of SMS messages from Claudia, inviting us to a part in Münster that evening, lured us (okay, mostly me) to set off for the German border at 8pm. Looked like two hours on the map. Really.
