Almost ready to go, half an hour early. Stanley told me there were left behind books in the other quarter of the apartment building, so I went looking. In the mean time, Dr T does the last packing and hears a knock on the door. Thinking I have my hands full, he opens the door and there is the (female) taxi driver.

Only Tony is ... naked.

When we leave, 20 minutes later, the lady is not to be found and a guy takes us to the airport. My theory is that she called her husband saying: there is a pervert here... .


We had to be at the airport 3 hours upfront to find out the counter only opens ...
2 hours upfront. And then, the ground hostess never did a check in, it takes her half an hour. This only the beginning of a veeeeery long journey.We land in Schiphol one hour late.      

We just missed the train to Brussels.  No wonder: all our luggage had to go through a very severe security check LEAVING the airport. This useless security drives me nuts.

 I call our hostesses when the train leaves and make the mistake saying: we left on time, so we will arrive on time. In Antwerp the train stops. And does not move anymore. After about half an hour we get the message: technical problems: this train is cancelled. My fault: I called on Murphy. We run for the local train and just make it. When I call the girls, they just arrive in Mechelen. They have to wait for half an hour.

At last, at last: we arrive and see our friends. They brought champagne and 4 glasses, we open the bottle on the gate. The first hugs and tears. But, what is this weather all about??? Is this summer? But I cannot be cranky: I am home!

We look at 4 weeks at home, very exciting weeks: full of adventure, unexpected events, a laugh and a tear. And fun. Lots of fun. There is nothing like taking our friends in your arms after 5 months, nothing.

You will hear about this later, for now Dr T and M are home: let the party begin!!!!!!!!
