Utrecht, The Netherlands

Dick van Doorn met us a Schiphol Airport this morning, since Gijs is away in Berlin today. The van was already loaded with our equipment. On the ride to Utrecht I asked Dick how the economy is doing in the Netherlands.

"A bit shaky. People are scared."

"Are there job losses happening?"

"Not really, not yet. More just rumors of what is to come."

At the rehearsal complex and music venue, Db's in Utrecht, they kindly allowed me to use the telephone behind the bar. I left a message for Wendy and Twan letting them know when to expect us this evening, at least I think I did; it is difficult when the recorded message is all Dutch to know if you did the right thing or even called the correct number.
