And apologies for the length of time between posts and the lack of posts. The reason for both is that while we're visiting Amsterdam, Thailand and Laos. the computers are staying behind in France.
Sparkling with snow, Amsterdam looked like an enchanting Christmas card. We ate magnificently thanks to friend Susie who lives there, skidded around the sidewalks, sang carols in Dutch on Christmas Eve and generally had a fantastic time.
December 28, we skipped across the time zones--Munich to Qatar, Qatar to Bangkok--arriving early evening which made it easy to get a good night's sleep. No jet lag and, sadly, no photos but I promise to upload lots when we get back to France. Look forward to taxis so bright pink they look like they've been painted with nail varnish, elephant Christmas lights, and of course all the glorious food we're eating.
