On our way

Gary and I head for Amsterdam this afternoon. We've been adjusting our sleep schedule so we'll be less jet-lagged when we get there; this morning we woke up at 3 am! The Netherlands is 9 hours ahead of us, so now our sleep should only be off by 3 to 4 hours, which is much more reasonable.

We spent the morning finishing our packing, getting things ready for the cat-sitters, and generally milling around trying to think of last minute stuff. A lot of time passes between 3 in the morning and noon (which is when our friend is picking us up for the airport).

Our ferry tickets from Bari to Patras were supposed to be delivered to Gary's office this morning, but weren't. Now we'll have to have someone here FedEx them to Europe, probably Switzerland. We've learned our lesson: never leave the ferry reservations until the last minute!

Are you still sending announcements of new entries on your blog, or does one just have to check in often? I hadn't seen any of your postings from recent months.

I forgot to mention: I think you're supposed to have dinner at an Indonesian restaurant while you're in the Netherlands.
