Ninge in Leiden

Am fost sa pap, si am ales Shabu Shabu, un restaurant japonez din apropiere. Dupa o masa minunata, am iesit sa revin acasa, dar afara ningea. Cu fulgi mari si pufosi. Si nu m-am putut abtine sa nu fac cateva poze si sa rad ca un copil retard la ninsoarea aia super super pufoasa.

Asta pana sa ma alerge gastele pe care am incercat sa le pozez 😛

 

Dusseldorf and back

De ceva timp stau prin Dusseldorf. I love it!

Week-end-ul asta am revenit in Leiden, cu trenul. A nins un pic si am ramas blocati in tren undeva pana in Utrecht. Eu, un cuplu in varsta venind din Germania, o tanara bulgaroaica cu kinder de 4 luni care se intorcea acasa in Amsterdam si un tip din Arnhem venit sa bea o bere cu amicii in Amsterdam. Am stat la povesti in calatoria care in mod normal dura (pt. mine) 1 ora jumate, din Dusseldorf, pana in Utrecht, de unde urma sa iau legatura spre Leiden. Dupa ce au anuntat ca din Utrecht nu mai sunt legaturi niciunde, am decis sa raman in cursa internationala ICE 124 spre Amsterdam Centraal, stiind ca am mai multe sanse sa vin in Leiden daca sunt in Amsterdam, decat daca sunt in Utrecht. Am ajuns in Amsterdam Centraal, nebunie mare. Si frig. Da’ FRIG. Apoi Schipol si apoi Leiden.

Am inghetat la greu. Noroc ca am o noua jucarica, sa nu ma plictisesc in tren: Nexus S. Din ala cu de toate (cand zic toate, zic ultimul Android, Google Wallet si full blown NFC). Exact cum mi-am dorit. Din pacate cam crapa, si tre sa-l fixez cumva.

Either way, those things can wait. Nu imi pare rau nici de telefon si nici de frig.

Ze Tyrant is here. Thus everything is alright with the world 🙂
