Next Few Days in Amsterdam

Holland!  We took some tours and learned a thing or two about some Dutch icons.

Saw a working lumber windmill, saw how (and why) clogs are made.  Saw some ingenious machinery, large and small.  Tinkerers and improvisers turned vast swamps into farmland, and enabled travel and trade on a scale never seen before.  My kind of folks!

They are also quite serious about cheese.  Mmmm, Kaas.

We also visited a zoo and museum of microorganisms. 

After about a week in Amsterdam, we took a train to Rotterdam for Filmapalooza.  The hotel wireless is lousy enough and the festival busy enough to make my blog updates even spottier than they might have been.
