We cleaned up Aunt Magda's house as best we could and took a taxi to the train station. Hopped on a train for The Hague where we were met by Nancy's other Aunt Eline and Uncle Dick. They were perfect hosts. While Dick took our bags, Eline took us on a tour of The Hague including the Mauritshuis Museum. There we were impressed by the Flemish Artists and of course by Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring". We had a delightful lunch outside ...

Sunday 30 March So daylight savings is back. And we lost an hour of sleep :( boo!! But Amsterdam gave us another glorious day! ...
... of Chessington Zoo in 1968, you are greeted by a waft of music delivered by a vast automated barrel organ. The ubiquitous South East Asian types are all snapping away taking pictures of each other's false teeth......tubs of tulips are strategically placed between the waffle vendors to give you hope that there is more than this.
