9th Stop - Amsterdam
I made it to Amsterdam early evening for what could best be called an appetizer visit. Indeed, I was there for less than 24 hours. But 24 hours was just enough to get re-acquainted with Janet and meet the rest of her growing family.
I met Janet about 10 years ago on a beach in the South of France. We managed to stay in touch at first through e-mail, then with a visit to Amsterdam seven years ago and also by helping connect her with my friend Nate while she was in Mexico... Facebook eventually came along and that just made things easier. ￼
Now I got the chance to meet her son, Antonio, and his Italian father, Enrico. We had a lovely visit, and I was very happy to hear about all of the exciting things on the horizon for them, including a second child only a few months away! Enrico is also studying computer programming and will be making a major career change a year or so. I told him about a couple of great sites where he could start out working as a freelancer: www.scriptlance.com and www.elance.com
Next stop: back to square one, Nice!
