While the darkness only last 3 hours this night (and the european sun now peeps into my eyes) i played a couple of games Backgammon. I’ve got to confess i played a lot better as i did last night with my brother. But playing against him is much more fun, eventhough i let him win.

45 minutes to go. Holland, i’m almost back.

Now somewhere half way between Canada and Ireland, above the Atlantic. Dark outside and in the plane almost everyone to sleep. In Metcalfe its 21.37, in my hometown it’s 3.37 and there’s 3.14 hrs. left to fly. Bruce sings “the River” to me.

Trying to get some sleep, but i’m not tired enough. Just keep on going. CU.

Just passed the passport-control, now spending my last canada dollars. Can’t edit on my phone “my feet @” page, but they are now on MacDonald-Cartier airport, Ottawa, ontario, Canada.

Waiting for the plane that takes me to Newark, New York.

This was where the wedding was last saturday.

Just 40 minutes, then they’re gonna take me to the airport. If ican find a free WiFi hotspot (i’ve got to wait for my connection-flight in New York, enough time to try) i’ll let you know where i am. And else, i’ll be back home tomorrow around noon (Dutch Time). Had a wonderfull time and bringing around 5.5 Gb pictures back home.  For the people that watch the game, good luck.

With every wish comes a curse.

So, first the answer on my yesterdays quiz. No Bert, i wasn’t making the silhouette of the roadrunner. It was the testdrive for todays Big Job. Mowing the Lawn. Something i always wanted to do, mowing it on a little tractor. Oh yes, a dream came true. It was so nice to do. The worst part of it was i had to do the sides with a small handmachine.  I know, with every wish comes a curse. » Lees meer

A shocking experience

Posted by on 25/06/2010 | No comments

Unfortunately, i couldn’t make a Foursquare Spot. ‘Cause just as i uploaded the article “Connected to the world” the entire building where i was started shaking. It was for about 8 to 10 seconds i guess, and it sounded like a huge locomotive was driving under the parking garage.

All the people in the Apple store behind me came out and wondered what had happened.  But because i’m not familiar in the shopping mall (or “I wasn’t famous around there”) i didn’t realize what was happening right away. But my sister and sister in law who were on the moment @ starbucks saw lots of people running to the exit, and decided to follow the crowd, leaving her cup of coffee for what is was worth.

At the moment we met each other i realized i just survived my first 5.5 earthquake (later we were told it was just 5.0 on the richter-scale). Except a light panic nothing really happened.  I read in the newspaper today that lots of people had been thinking of the same train thing as i did.

As i wrote earlier today, as soon i found an open connectie i would let you know. And here in downtown Ottawa in front of an Apple-store, i found it. So i uploaded some stuff, made some tweets and wrote this article. I’ll show in the picture there i am, and i’ll try to make an Foursquare spot.
