...must have been the beers...

On our way to the Den Haag meeting we (JAFA-Rease and Nathalie_B) made an overnight stop in Breda and had our own personal tour guide, the new local, Nathalie. For some reason she mainly took us to bars...is she herself a drunk, or does she just know us too well? We did do some sightseeing...we saw the prison. Was she trying to tell us something? :-) We didn't visit it for the reason you all are thinking. Anyway, we were pretty good until just before bed time...then it was time for margaritas and Absinthe...not a good combination to help us catch some Z's before the trip to Den Haag. Or maybe it was? Unfortunately, it had an effect on us, in that we were late arriving to the meeting, much to the chagrin of the meeting organizer, Sandra (mique). Sorry about that...but it was a fun night. :-)

This is Dante, believe it or not...

It's not blurry because of the drinks...well, maybe for Rease, but that's OK...he held his own quite well. :-) This was a nice place and practically empty, which was nice...

Gambling? Not in our state of mind...and finances.

This was another stop on our sightseeing tour. It was interesting...the casino is built in an old church, which you can see the remnants of from the inside. Strange combination...even for someone who lived in Vegas for 3 1/2 years. :-)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A good place to have a few drinks.
  • Cons:Wasn't there long enough to find any...yet.
  • In a nutshell:A fun time was had by all...I think.

    Hi missed you at the meeting this weekend! Sorry Dave but the casino isn't build in an old church but in an old barrack and before that, a long, very long time ago it was a monastery
