My Time in Pictures

Prior to my departure I envisioned regular updates on my blog. Sifting though my photos and re-telling of what I saw and learned with vigor and excitement. The reality is I am not so keen to be posting as I am often exhausted or distracted by other events such as dinner, doing laundry or having a drink. Now that I am settled in South Yorkshire, England where I am cat sitting for 6 weeks I still can not guarantee that I will write as frequently – you know I have cats to pet, TV to watch and catch up on sleeping in. One much unwind when given the chance LOL. Actually, I do intend to write some more while in England. In the meantime I hope this post of pictures will suffice.

Zaanse Schans has a number of working windmills along with museums and displays of Dutch culture. A bit touristy but still very interesting.

For those of you from Vancouver – and you thought Granville Skytrain Station had a long escalator. One of the Underground (Tube) escalators.
