Around the World in 80 Days: Day 59, Dutch Weird Stuff

Welp.  I gotta tellya.  This is a very different residency.  It’s not bad.  In fact, the old people-hating me from about 60 days ago, had she come here first, would be doing just fine.  This is very solitary.  I have a big Dutch house all to myself.  It’s beautiful here and the kitchen area has […]

Around the World in 80 Days: Day 57, The Monster Cafe

Japan has a lot of themed cafes and restaurants. It seems like the very first place I would be interested in (aside from a cat cafe) would be the Robot Restaurant. Uh.

Around the World in 80 Days: Day 52, Dutch Impressions

Today is my first full day in Renkum, Holland.  I was greeted at the nearby train station by the residency concierge, Josien Jonegan, who graciously gave me a ride home with my cumbersome luggage.  I was shown around the house and quickly given a key.  Josien knew I was tired as I had just come […]
