zephyr illusions photo by donna October 1992. The view atop Chasseral, Jura Mountains looking across Switzerland to The Alps on the horizon. Fog, intensely thick, rising from Lac Bienne and stretching its fingers high onto the Lignières-Plateau de Diesse after wholly filling the valley below the plateau.

Yay... got a room booked with Amsterdam hotel

i am very pleased.... even though the city is nearly totally booked due to the annual IBC conference & exhibition, i was able to draw upon my own experience in hotel management and charm the manager of my first choice of hotels into having a room available for me when i make my visit to Amsterdam in September. i am delighted to say that i have a confirmed reservation for a typical amsterdam single room with a view of beautiful Vondelpark.
Bedankt to that very nice and understanding hotelier for making me a happy camper :)


  1. Just browsing your log, and saw you were going to Amsterdam. Good luck and enjoy the view of the Vondelpark :)

  2. bedankt, Prof! the view of Vondelpark is only one of the many things i hope to enjoy while experiencing historically and culturally rich Amsterdam :)

  3. Try the zoo :) it's also very nice, very centrally located.. and ofcourse the other widely published aspects of Amsterdam. Maybe you can find the tavern :) which featured in Oceans 12 if you can accept the smel of.....

  4. zoo? i was thinking more about museums and galleries and live music. but, now you got me curious about the zoo... thought i might witness that at Paradiso ;)
    but will research it :)
    ya got me curious about the tavern, though...
