I've downloaded all the Dutch tram material ready to edit, the DVD for Den Haag ins nearly ready but I think I need to do the cover for Birmingham trams I filmed last week. The weather here is a typical bank holiday , best to keep off the roads which typically have seen one of the main routes to the continent shut by a damaged bridge hit be two lorries. I'm looking in detail at the potential Japanese tram tour next year, I had a chat with a Japanese chap I took a picture for, he was on business in Amsterdam. He recommended not going at the height of their summer due to high humidity. I'm still looking at something after Christmas to suit Mandy as well as me. I'm looking out for cheap air fares through the autumn so I can keep up with my foreign travel especially places I haven't filmed is for quite a while. in the Netherlands the trams and trolleys are now pretty boring with modern types and little variety.
The Belgium trip next week should take in all the tram locations, there being no trolleys left. I'm on with the Dutch film editing and working my way through the newpapers plus resting a bit after the heavy work in the greenhouse lugging sacks od concrete and stones about. Lets have a look back then starting with Den Haag. I carried on from Rotterdam to Arnhem and had a good night at the Irish pub with a local who sat and had a few beers with me, it was hot and I could watch the trolleys going by
