Again, this one sits at the computer at 7. This time, Brussels is playing golf and Moscow is sightseeing, no chatting to the Girls. Luckily, my brother comes on line an hour later: my day is always good when I have contact with my family and friends, I miss them so!

After the normal morning (or should I say noon) rituals, we leave to do some shopping. Challenge: find the Da to do some beauty product shopping. Luckily it works better then the newspaper shopping. Dr T did not find 1 newspaper on the whole island yet, not 1 newspaper shop!!!

Then we drive by a couple of dive shops: not impressed, not impressed. Till we go to the Dive Bus, where we meet Lucy and Marc (British) and then of course, it is in the sjakosh.

We go diving Tuesday and Wednesday. We still have the car for 2 days and Monday, we will do the boring stuff, like paying bills (again).

We go to the center of the city, I do like Wllemstad. Dr T needs new sloefkes and our friends in the hotel told us where they bought theirs. And indeed, check it out:

Shopping is thirsty with those temperatures, so time for a beer. 
They also have Duvel: but I think this is too heavy when you are thirsty!

Look Norbert, a picture of me, on your request. And it is NOT Heineken, Opa!

Afterwards, Dr T finds himself a barber. A real one! It takes him almost an hour to cut Tony's hair. The cut is perfect. The hairdo maybe a bit nerdy, but do not tell him; he is very vain!

We have tapas afterwards and go to ... the movies! It has been many months since we did. Of course Hubby chooses a SF: the transformers, which turns out to be very nice. A bit creepy and a lot of good humor. Unfortunately I have someone next to me, who kicks me at least 10 times and stands on my food a lot. That someone might have been male or female, 14 or 30 years old and an ADHD, is my guess, ever tried kicking your neighbor in the movies, it is hard! But (s)he manages all the time, even though I am almost sitting on Dr T's lap! I am always unlucky in that respect, also in planes. I enjoy the movie anyway and afterwards, we drive back home to go for our next midnight swim. Fred and Hans are sitting on the terrace. Our conclusion is that they are both a bit lonely. Fred, with his 2 pretty daughters and 44.000 Euro Rolex, in a nasty divorce. Hans with his (20 year younger) girlfriend, trying to have a baby, moved here from the Netherlands, less than a year ago. I can imagine: having contact with the guests, who all stay a week or two and then they are gone again, leaving you behind with a bit of an empty feeling. Maybe I have too much imagination.

Again, we are asleep by 1 and tomorrow, is the last day of our car.
