Dear Diary: Hey, Do You Have the Time?

Friday, May 17, 2013
Dear Diary,
Does anybody really know what time it is? 
I don't.
Does anybody really care?
Great lyrics from Robert Lamm of the band Chicago...  He professes he got the idea from a fellow at a movie theater. I'm thinking maybe he was experiencing his first day dealing with jet lag during a trip abroad. That's how I feel! My body says it is one time. My watch says it is another.  I wake up when I should be going to sleep. I want to sleep when it is time to eat! 
On top of that, it rained today, so it was ugly and grey, and because we are so much further north (in Amsterdam) it stays lighter far later. I have no idea what time it is... and I guess I am too tired to care!
Today we visited the Keukenhoff Gardens. Even in the rain, even in the last days of tulip season, they were spectacular! After the garden tour, and after enjoying a round-about route back to our room (I can't say the "L" word... You know the one I mean?), we met up with my brother and his wife. He had scouted out a place for dinner and we enjoyed a wonderful meal. 
So, finishing on a other musical note, this time from "Hair":
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in,
The sunshine in.....

Goodnight Diary (it is night...get it?)

Dreaming
PS: I can't seem to post pictures with the technology that I have. I'm working on it. But, with the time confusion I'm a bit tired, and my brain is a bit confused. Maybe tomorrow! For now, just picture a Salvadore Dali clock as an illustration for this post!

  2. Is the "L" word a four letter word, by any chance?
    My worse travel confusion was Hong Kong to Japan. Woke up and couldn't figure out where the heck I was.
