Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

A photo of my latest minibook as promised. The photos were taken in summer 1996 when I was at University. The University Symphony Orchestra toured the Oban area of Scotland. We did several concerts, and the rest of the time was spent in a stupour! Drunk isn't quite enough of a description I don't think! On the way home I looked absolutely shocking, having only spent an hour in bed without an alcoholic drink in my hand. Makes me shudder now. Yuck.

I have attracted some Dutch visitors as Anita lives in the Netherlands. I saw one blogger's take on cookies was speculaas cookies. Gingerbread, dutch style. Yum yum . Having spent a year living in Enschede whilst studying with Jaap van Zweden at the Conservatorium, I learned to love so many Dutch foods. Drop, stroopwaffels, olliebollen, haagelslag, vla, and the Indonesian food which was so readily available there too. Nasi goreng, bami, more yum yum!!! I need a visit to Amsterdam so I can fit in an Indonesian meal again, washed down with a nice vasje of Amstel or Grolsch.

If anyone would like to send me some of the Dutch food listed above, leave me a comment and I'll be in touch...... LOL :D
