OK my picture in front of I AM STERDAM, I am not even sure what that means , but I can tell you it was SUREDAM hot here today. They are having a "hot spell" as my landlord called it, going on 2 weeks now
Today art and history, both were both. Went to Anne Frank Huis, they let you go behind the bookcase and up the stairs. There were film clips from a worker in her fathers office and her father. He received the diary after news of her death in a camp from his office worker. He said Anne never expressed herself , she would give her opinion but she never made known to them these feelings as she documented them.
On to galleries - I prefer Rembrandt to Van Gogh, and Johannes Vermeer to them both (The Girl with the Pearl Earring). Next in line would be Johannes Versponck because he sure could paint up some pale ladies. Back in the day I would have been his girl.
Now for today I have some self portraits (not like Rembrandt's but ). One is of me eating breakfast in the street in the neighborhood the other overlooking one of the centre squares
Flower Market was full of well - Flowers and tourist junk, well yes I picked up my fridge magnet.
Oh one last encounter. I Pi---- off one of the tram drivers today. Got to the end of the line the tram made a big circle and came to a stop. The driver turned around seen me there and said
"What are you doing here"
"I must have missed my stop at Van Gogh"
"I said it twice VAGU VAGU"
"Well VAGU didn't sound like Van Gogh to me- sorry"
"YOU DO NOT LISTEN, YOU DID NOT LISTEN" (face purple-yelling)
With a little tuff of dyed blond hair on top of his head shaking back and forth.
"Oh well I'll just wait until we head in the other direction"
"IT WILL BE A LONG TIME"
"I have 2 months, it won't be that long will it?" (face and neck flaming now)"
When we headed back I sat near him so he could throw me off at the right stop and informed him of that, he just kept mumbling "You no listen". When we got to the stop he pointed to the museum and yelled "VAGU VAGU SEE"
It still did not sound anything like Van Gogh...............
Miss ya, see ya
