I'm getting too old for this sh*t

Friday: Discover Your Own Country Day. Another two landmarks I can scratch off my to-visit list, namely the Afsluitdijk (The Dutch pinnacle of waterworks, along with the Deltaworks) and the Martinitower in Groningen (which has NOTHING to do with the popular pre-dinner drink, but happens to hold the largest sundial in the Netherlands). Saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Go Fred & George!) and at night there was kart-racing, Mexican food and shooting pool. Went home at 1am, got home at 3.45am. Wham.

Saturday: One of my nieces booked a night at a hotel in The Hague along with her best friend and they'd asked me to show them around town a little. They weren't interested in the Omniversum or Madurodam, so what else can one do with two twenty-something girls? Shopping! And dinner at Crazy Piano's. And then take them to Noordwijk for a drink and a dance. This time I didn't see my bed until 2.30am.

Sunday: Zombieeeee. And reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in one day to prepare for part 7 next week.
