So as I'm sure it was made clear by yesterday's post, we're no longer in Western Australia. We left there only 3.5 weeks ago, but it feels like at least 6 weeks. From Australia we travelled to San Francisco for a few days to catch up with some friends and eat as much nostalgia food as we could. Then to Chicago to visit my parents, where I slept for much of a week (chest infection) and we desperately got the last of the visa stuff figured out (more hangups with beauracracy). Then to Pittsburgh for a few days with Dan's family, where I got to see the Cubs completely trounce the Pittsburgh Pirates, and we arrived Amsterdam last Tuesday. From there it's been, well, you read about that yesterday.
But today was/is Dan's birthday, so we had a fun day. Travelled to Utrecht, one of the cities outside Amsterdam we're looking to settle in, wandered around, ate lunch at a really nice little cafe, climbed 400some-odd steps to the top of the Domtoren (the bell tower of the main cathedral), and saw the new Bourne movie. A much better day.
Photos may go up tomorrow. It's too late tonight. :)
