Today I spent the first part of the day in lovely Delft with Eowyn Unquendor. Spent a small fortune on souvenirs, climbed the claustrophobia-inducing church tower, got my kitty-fix petting a pet-store cat, and got chocolates to take back to the States. Must keep the chocolates a secret, or everyone at work will be besieging my office when I get back. Also tried the Dutch pancakes (much better than their American cousins), and they are very big! Had Eowyn not stopped me from ordering two, I would still be trying to finish them. Anyway, her journal has a much more detailed description.

After we parted, I went to the Haague. Started with the Madurodam (I thought it was fun) and then a quick run to the Parliament and the Queen's Palace. Did not see the Queen.

The only downside to today is the fact that my shoulders are rather red. I hope it will turn into a tan tomorrow rather than sunburn. It would be ironic if I, who did not burn in the fierce subtropical sun of Florida and California, not even Italy or tropical Taiwan, managed to get the second sunburn of my life in the Netherlands of all places...
