Unfortunately I have to admit that I'm not intending to repeat everything I've babbled about in my mail, it actually still makes my turn pink but what can you do.
Well, maybe some Amsterdam feedback instead. Really great city unless you despise sex and drugs, of course. In that case you should make sure that you never ever set a foot into the "older" city part. The only good thing is that if I ever decide to study in Amsterdam I wonít have any problems to fund my stay. Provided I donít spend the money in the coffee shops next door. I think one day Iíll buy a house boat there. Have I actually mentioned that we wen camping there? On an island 20 min form the centre, very good location, though when I say island, the whole city is more water than land it seems. Quite nice as long as you donít happen to have to sleep in a tent when Armageddon-thunderstorm is above your head that makes your hair go white and panic completely. But apparently I have just been irrational!!
With my Mumís friend, whoís hospitality we relied on after the end of the world weather, we went to some typical Dutch bars, which in fact resembled very much the typical German karneval bars, though there were some significant differences. The stools, for example, are always made out if red leather and the tables have some carpetish-covers. The music sounded pretty much the same and I understood as much as I usually do with German karneval songs, makes you feel homesick really.
Well, that was Amsterdam. Now Iíll have to face my trip back to Warwick! And, of course, the general elections tomorrow. I could tell everyone who Iím gonna vote for now and at the same time make some advert for that specific party, which would encourage those who read this and like me to copy me!!! But then elections are supposed to be secret. Plus if you still donít know my political position the you should really think about spending some more time with me again!!!!!

I went swimming with Dad Herbert today, which was really nice, especially since i discovered that I'm a very fast swimmer (all relative i guess). Oh no, I think I'm doing it again (oops I mean to quote a rather freaky pop queen). The thing is that i received complains from some of my clostest family members that like my usual generous nature I'm not saving up the nasty comments about them. So now, an official appology and i'll try to express my more positive views next time.
Something nice then: I'm really happy to be back home for some days, which is a rather stupid comment, since this was actually supposed to be my good-bye-I'm-leaving-for-Amsterdam-entry but never mind.
Oh, before I forget, big news: I GOT A NEW LAPTOP and i'm actually employing it already to wirte this entry (that's why it takes my about twice as long today). Already put some good old German music on it, of course, also something for the older generations (and Stu), but I think that Stu has most of the songs already.
Right, off to enjoy some holidays now! Amsterdam, and maybe I'll manage to pick up some Dutch this time and obviously see loads of Dutch people!!!! And swim in the Grachten!
Wish everybody some nice last couple of weeks and hope you don<#t forget to re-enrole!!
