The Dutch have come through. Sort of....
The biggest concern for the illustrious Sparky and myself has been the lack of permits coming forth from the government of the Netherlands. It was one week ago today that everything was faxed - for about the fifth time - and good ol' Sparky was able to get an actual person on the phone. I nearly fell out of my chair when I got the text this morning. She told Sparky that they have our stuff, but they won't be sending out the permits until two days before we fly out. Again, my stomach did a bit of a dive. I told Sparky that the best we could do was record the info about the call and be prepared to offer bribes with reckless abandon when we reach Amsterdam.
I am also in the process of getting my traveling partner set up in his own blog. I am trying to make things as simple as possible, because although he is a nice guy, he really isn't that sharp. Did I say that out loud? Oops....
Things continue to happen. Arranging travelers cheques, figuring out pills, looking at the a la carte' menu on the plane, checking out which movies will be playing - all the important stuff. I don't expect to be posting here on a daily basis, but instead will post short burst of info and thoughts leading up to blast off. 30 days, 22 hours, 38 minutes and counting, but who's counting?
