I didn't realize that among the few visitors/friends of my blog, there are some who wonder how I look. Well....wonder no more and be disappointed LOL. My wife and I wish all of you A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
Both photos were taken during our recent riverboat cruise. My receding white hair is a dead giveaway of my age LOL. I'm the oldest in our group, kasama daw ako ni Bonifacio ng sumigaw and pinunit ang kanyang cedula sa Balintawak LOL.

I didn't realize it's been more than a month since my last posting! I do not know what's wrong with me....it's probably the burden of advancing age LOL. Anyway, the program for the day is an excursion to The Hague, a visit to Madurodam and lunch at a fancy, beachside restaurant. Easy enough for oldies like us.
Madurodam is a place to see if you have the time to kill.
What the hell, I might as well take a pic!

The program for the day was to motor to the center of Haarlem, take a leisurely walk to the market square then visit the Frans Hal Museum and return to the boat for a late lunch. The boat will then depart for Rotterdam. A "rough" schedule for old foggies like us LOL.

We were not scheduled to leave Amsterdam for Haarlem until later in the day. The plan for the morning was to tour the city and visit the Van Gough museum. There were a total of 133 cruisers divided into three groups under three program managers; I guessed, for easy handling. I think they know from experience that old travelers like us, complain and belly-ache a lot LOL.
Our first formal dinner

My wife and I have done many ocean cruises but not a river cruise till now. She wanted to see the Floriade (a once a decade horticultural Expo in the Netherlands), so I decided we might as well go on a river cruise which covered this expectacle. Guess why she wanted to see the Expo...because her sisters gave her a glowing account of the one they saw ten years prior! Talaga naman!!
I asked her to make all the travel arrangements and I just reluctantly loosen my wallet when the bills came. Story of my life!
I had no idea what a river cruise boat looks like but I was relieved our floating mobile home was not this one LOL.
Some forbidden drugs in the US and other countries are openly advertised and legally sold here...and so is sex. What a country!! As old as I am now, I do not think my wife will let me take a vacation here by myself LOL.
