Did I also forget The Hague?

My boss and I went to a conference in The Hague.  The conference was fine.

The beach was better!

Along an inlet were little coves - dog beach!

Frites. Mayo. Fish nuggets.

Easter chocolate at Hop en Stork.

De Passage - Indoor Shopping UNESCO Monument

A little too far back?
My favorite piece at Mauritshaus was The Goldfinch.  And if I ever go back, I'd like to visit the Escher Museum.

Did I forget Poland?

The CLO did a trip.  Primarily because the CLO wanted to go Polish pottery shopping.  And there's no better reason to arrange a trip!

We stayed here, you should too.

Manufaktura factory tour followed by pottery painting.
We should get these back soon after they are fired.

My purchases!

The food was awesome as expected.

The Poland Pierogies!

They did it! "Miracle on Ice" style!

History has its eyes on you, part 2

Who runs the world?

These guys.


The youth have been awoken, and with them is coming a wave.  I have no doubt it will take time - a lot of time. I have no doubt it's going to be painful.  I have no doubt there will be setbacks, some major.  I fear there will be losses.

I have no doubt they will not stop.

History has its eyes on you

Lin-Manuel Miranda and his team have created magic. It was worth every penny to go to London to see "Hamilton."





My next step... reading Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton, the book that started the movement.
