the only earth?


I'm in Amsterdam now. It was dark when the plane landed at 8 am and I think I napped through most of the daylight. There's a big windmill at the end of my street (or at least on the tram ride over). Everyone is remarkably tall here. Of course, I knew that [nyer], but I didn't really think about how it would feel.

So far, I've managed to walk around enough to find a Mac store to buy an ethernet cable, peruse the grocery store downstairs for a snack, and take the train out to IKEA to supplement the substandard linen collection included in the rent.

Like my real apartment, this one also has a weird pointless room and Google wants to speak to me in Dutch.
