Well, yesterday morning we packed our bags to go to John’s place for the BBQ weekend which has become famous amongst the Dutch forumers. We were the first to arrive, and I thought John was joking when he said we got the wrong weekend.
But no, Alexander and I had screwed up, I guess with the jetlag and all. But John invited us to stay for a drink anyway and we later stayed for dinner. 3am the next morning we finally left……Alexander had drunk a truckload of coffee and we discovered at a really bad time that neither of Alexanders headlights worked. His parking lights worked and the highbeam were fine…..but no normal lights, ugh. Sooooo, we drove home with highbeam and turning the highbeam off everytime we passed a car. I thought at that time of the morning there’d be less cars on the road than there were, but well……I guess this is Europe, they do have a higher population here.
We were looking forward to getting off the smaller roads and onto the bigger freeways where they are all lit up by street lights, but for some strange reason, all the street lights were off? So no help there either! But we did eventually get home safely.
