    OT - I survived

    .. flying
    .. chaos at the airports
    .. the lack of decent public transport
    .. temperatures over 30 degrees celsius (days and nights)
    .. spanish food
    .. lousy beds and bathrooms
    .. not being able to connect to Internet(that was heaven!!)
    .. not listening to ANY music
    .. not watching TV (more heaven!!)
    .. not reading anything

    Now

    .. I have to check my finances
    .. I have to read all your replies, technical issues, etc.
    .. listen to a lot of your compositions and renderings
    .. I have to getting used to work with GPO again (sorry, but I didn't miss it)
    .. do some exercises to loose weight

    In other words, we were at the end of the world,

    Why do Dutch people go to hot countries?

    It's the same with the British - they have no idea of how to handle it and wind up generally getting heat stroke, out of control drunk, arrested and deported and/or perm any one of those from all four.

    I never go to places where the dirty scum British go. I avoid them like the plague. The Queen Mary II is more my scene these days.

    Anyway - hope you enjoyed your break.

    Answers: getting a tan, to find out why the better music is coming from hotter countries than the Netherlands, to value their own climate, to punish themselves, to know that at home GPO is waiting......hahaha.

    That's why we avoided the holiday season. And we didn't got drunk. And we have a Spanish policeman as friend of the family.

    I didn't see of hear British scum, I saw a lot of British (it was the area near Alicante) to my regret, but not scum. Being on that luxury rowing boat is not my idea of a Holiday. Besides that there is more scum on the QMII than you know.

    Anyway - hope you enjoyed your break.
    We did, thank you. It was nice to see our friends again, to see our favorite landscapes again, to experience that typical spanish food (grilled shoe-soles, prawns, delicious fish dishes, paellas, icecreams, cafe solo (real liquid asphalt), churros with hot chocolate, that great Serrano ham, palmtrees. Getting it all together: it was really nice.

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Good - this is the town where I live some of the time and we had thousands of Dutch here this summer. Euro exchange rate probably.
