Rosie, do visit Amsterdam!, though I hope you will be kept busy until the final day in Rotterdam.
I think I also will visit the tournament for some days. Even without Gaston, it has such a strong and interesting field.
They did some shooting of "Ocean's 12" in and around Hotel Pulitzer here. The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk from my house and I go to the neighbourhood often enough for shopping, coffee, or eating out. I still have to see the movie to check if I recognize the sites.
I live in the most depressing part of loveliest area in Amsterdam : rolleyes: ; don't know if I'm lucky or unlucky. Anyway, one of the nicest things about living here is that you see cats everywhere! On street, in cafe, in shops - cats enough for me to adore them.
The pic, by the way, is a cat I met in Northern France.
