The Envelope, Please
After my trip ended on Wednesday, I hopped on a Northwest flight to MSP, where I caught another NWA flight to Amsterdam. It was delayed four hours for a flap problem, so we didn't land until 1630 central european time. That left just enough time to change, take the train to The Hague, eat, and go to ASTA nightclub for the 250th episode celebration of A State of Trance, a weekly music radio show produced by dutch DJ Armin van Buuren. The party lasted all night and featured sets by Jonas Steur, M.I.K.E., John Askew, Rank 1, Menno de Jong, and Armin van Buuren himself.
When the show ended at 0500 this morning, I walked to Den Haag Centraal Station to take the train to Schipol Airport...and discovered that all train service was suspended indefinately between Den Haag and Leiden due to an electrical problem. Whoops. I took a bus to Leiden instead and then caught the train to the airport, where I took Northwest to MSP. From there I took United to Denver and then Portland, arriving back here at 1900 PDT.
Three days...24 hours of flying...11,000 nm. Not that I'm bragging or anything [grin]. I'm going to bed now, as I haven't slept in a bed since tuesday night....
