After being in Toronto for a brief time (and seeing the Graham Patriarch, the Uniac/Schnaar Clan and some of our buddies), we headed back to Amsterdam on December 30. Spent New Years Eve in the presence of thousands of Dutch, watching a spectacle that was ended by awesome fireworks. Fireworks here are "regulated", in that one can 'only' set them off from December 30th until January 2nd. Other than that, it's a free-for-all. I swear, we were watching a citizens bombing of Amsterdam.
The next morning, there were a few tired, ill-feeling people in the house. Everyone recovered in time, and Matt and I started planning our next trip out. Something active this time: skiing. But Where.
