Through the day we had coffee and apple cake to sustain us. ;-) And at the end we got to 'walk through Hoorn in the olden days' by way of virtual reality glasses. The last was a real experience and very much like the one Wim and I had at the Waterliniemuseum Fort bij Vechten, which, I noticed, I never mentioned in my blog at the time. And after all that we got on the train back to Purmerend for a quiet night in.
On Tuesday I spent the morning chatting with Paula and her daughter Inge who dropped in with her son Jorit. Then it was time to say goodbye as I had agreed to visit Clasine and Jan in Oosthuizen. I had lunch with them and we chatted away till it was time for me to go home. I left a little later than planned and of course got caught up in the traffic. It took me approx. 2 hours to get home, slightly longer than it would have been during the quiet of the day, so it wasn't too bad. Just the amount of cars around you makes it a tiring trip. I finished the day with an early night.
