just got back to amsterdam.
way way many many projects for H, i feel a little overwhelmed at the moment. during my extra week there they came up with a product movie for me to film, we shot that on thursday and friday.
friday evening i saw my sister liz and her pal mary, they drove down to see me at the jazztown glen.
saw aj and rob and pete on saturday. aj came to fetch me from jazztown and drive me to the city. the hotel people all seemed sorry to see me go.
i was very surprised to discover that i was not scheduled to fly on NW38 at 19.05, but on NW60 at 22.00. maybe somebody had told me that, but i don't remember getting anything. good thing i called the travel agent.
flight NW60 is a smaller plane, very different from the 37/38 affair, actually considerably quieter. boring flight, the usual bouts of dozing and jolting awake, wiggling around in the seat, trying not to bump into the big lady sitting next to me. around 08.20 amsterdam time i could see a faint dawn glow on the horizon. then more dozing, then full morning light and a cloudbed horizonwide. finally around 10.30 we crossed over the dutch coastline and saw the dunes, looked like the area around noordwijk.
i had more ear pressure weirdness while descending. then i saw the shadow of the airplane on the green crops, slowly rising to kiss the plane itself as we came in for a landing.
