wow! the bicycles! the cycle lanes! the canals! the giant panier racks! oh and the social centres!
got into hamsterville late last nite after a mixture of train, cyclage and boating. its a bit of a cheat but we took rail and sail as its just £39 from london to anywhere you want in holland. considering the ferry alone is £30 and you can take bikes. yay! (see seat61.com/Netherlands.htm)
headed straight to casa robina (casarobino.org) which is *kind of* an open house for couch surfers. we had friends whove stayed here before so we emailed in the morning, rang on the doorbell late of a rainy night, hung up our clothes to dry and cooked up some mushroom stroganoff with bulgar wheat. yes.
