Tuesday March 25. Hyacinths

Written by Jack van Ommen on March 26th, 2014

I purchased a large back pack, similar to the one that went down with the ship. My earthly possessions have outgrown the shopping bag I arrived with from Mallorca. I found the bag on the Dutch equivalent of E-Bay in Lisse, a town in the bulb growing area. It was a beautiful sunny day and I decided to take the bicycle for the 22 mile roundtrip. On the way back I stopped at my cousin in Heemstede and rode back in the dark, against a stiff northerly and the light being generated with a “dynamo” on the front tire. Sort of like climbing a hill with a load of bricks. I needed the work out. Gone is my gorgeous teen age body, I had last summer, with sitting behind the laptop most of the day.
