Goog Bye Europe.

Monday 8th.

Right now packing has started and should be finished in a few hours. A taxi is booked to get us to the airport which is about 15km away. There is no way I am prepared to take 2 trams then a train to the airport with the baggage we seem to have accumulated.

Now some information that will astound and even amaze you. Am told around 15000 cycles are dredged from the canals every year. I assume that some were not actually ridden into the canal by cyclists.

A quiet day, today starting off with a visit to one of Jan's favourites, a market. Mix of food and merchandise, including the inevitable trash.

Then onto a foodhall which was a conversion of a tram barn. Very interesting and where we stopped for a much needed beer and a little lunch.

We did not visit the world renown Amsterdam Red Light district as we actually have red lights at home in NZ and probably of a higher wattage.Perhaps on our next visit I bring some bulbs over.

So drifted back to the hotel and am sorting through what goes in which bag, bearing in mind the main bags go straight through to Auckland, but we need some bits & pieces for the one night Singapore stopover.

That's all and no photos as I have already put Mr Camera away for his trip. Hope you have enjoyed following our journey. Over and out.
