Yesterday, Lorie and I started our day stepping out of the hostel onto the dark, quiet streets of Amsterdam where a light rain was falling as we made our way to the train station. Exactly 24 hours later, we returned to Montana, where a light snow was falling as we drove from the airport. It was a pretty long day of travel for us, but also indicative of how far one can travel in just 24 hours in these modern times. Yesterday was quite literally a day of planes, trains, and automobiles– the day before that involved a bus and a ferry too.
Consequently, I’m a bit jet-lagged today. Or perhaps I’m just tired from a succession of several travel-intense and sleepless days– or getting sick. Or some combination of all of those. Right now, it’s just after 9 pm, and I feel like I’m trying to stay awake as though it were two in the morning. I guess that makes it about 5 in the morning in the Netherlands, so perhaps that’s why I feel like I’m so tired. Well, I’ll try to stay up a bit longer to try to acclimate back to Mountain time.
Several Days Later…
Well, I managed to stay up until about 9:30 pm, but I didn’t actually get around to finishing this update. So, I’m just going to close this up, and try to make a proper update later this afternoon.
