I love how your mom is framing this all in terms of Weight Watchers. It feels like you haven't been in Douai for months. Are you playing hooky?

Kate what are jelly babies. I chucked as I read about your trip with the kids. Do you have ant idea how many field trips I was on with kids. Fourteen times to Washington D.C. alone. Love You Aunt Marie

An overwhelming silence and pain in my heart for those that endured such a tragedy engulfs my body when I read of this and see these pictures...thanks for sharing. I have never been to see anything like this but my husband has and tells me you can feel their spirits when you are visiting one of these places.

Another great trip!
I'm with you on wondering why you would vacation and spend your time smoking in your room when there is so much adventure waiting outside! Once again thanks for the great pictures and even better commentary. I find your words delightful!! I was very interested in this as I made a new friend 5 months ago that is Dutch through postcrossing. We really connected right away and talk everyday now. Strange how she is like a long lost family member. She has shared with me many beautiful pictures and things from Holland. She has never told me of the "other" side of Amsterdam, so I believe that most Dutch people don't live this way! They do love their bikes though! I really would love to see Anne Franks home and was happy to see that picture. I also used to LOVE Pippi Longstocking when I was a child and would love to see this! Wow! I would definitely go when the tulips were in bloom as I have seen some incredible pictures of them! My friend lives in Arnhem and she goes to museums every weekend. The Dutch love to go to them so maybe this is why they have so many. She grew up in the very old town of Maastrich and the pictures I have seen of it make me want to see it also. Thanks for the great blog of your travels!!

When we visited Curacao, my sister commented that Dutch sounded a little bit like German and Chinese mixed together... :P Did you also find that many of the Dutch speak nearly unaccented English (and that, of course, they speak it better than most Americans)? I thought that was very interesting.

Kate-you really are getting an education with all the traveling your doing-what a strangely interesting place you just visited. Getting ready for Italy. love you

Little French girls crying over one little British boy sounds like pretty much the cutest thing ever. However, one of my kids gave me permission to say the n-word. So I win.

Oh, Kate!
Sounds like a great time. Maybe you should give up infectious diseases and become a fifth grade teacher like your mom.
