under the coconut tree

Saturday, May 29, 2004


This is one of the few pictures we have of the windmills of Zaanse Schaanz outside Amsterdam. The rest of the 6 rolls of film - together with pictures from the Amalfi Coast, Isle of Capri and Pompeii were lost when KL's camera bag was snatched in Naples.

Travellers heading to Southern Italy, please beware! The bag was snatched right under my nose while our car stopped at a busy junction. The snatch thief and his accomplices tricked me into unwinding the window to re-adjust an "accidentally" knocked side-view mirror, and with a blink of an eye, he reached in to snatch the bag away. Though it ruined our holiday, lucky for us the cameras were insured! As much as I would like to curse the thieves for 7 generations, I guess it's all part and parcel of travelling.

KL and I will be looking forward to newer cameras soon! Posted by Hello
