Thick fog delayed our take off from Rome and had us circling in the ‘holding area’ over Amsterdam until we were dizzy. In the airport, we take a number. Four hours later we learn that we’ll fly out tomorrow.
Bad news: we will not sleep in our own bed tonight and we don’t have our luggage. Good news: we’ll spend the night in Zandvoort, acute little beach town in the Netherlands about 40 minutes west of Amsterdam. KLM Airlines picks up the bill for taxi, hotel, dinner and breakfast; they even include an overnight pack with toiletries, a T-shirt, and socks.
Sweet town; impressive sand sculptures; cold beer; time for bed. We’ll try again tomorrow.
