HOLLAND, 2000

On September 21, 2000, my son Ben took me to the Lancaster AMTRAK Station
from where I trained to Philadelphia 30th Street, then transferred to a SEPTA train bound for
Philadelphia Airport.
From there I flew Lufthansa first to Frankfurt, then on to Amsterdam
(cost of return ticket: $425).
Here my sister Carla picked me up and I stayed with Hans and Carla in Reeuwijk.
I ordered a senior discount ticket from the Dutch Railroads and made various one-day trips.
I also attended the 50th Anniversary of our installation in 1950 as naval cadets ("adelborsten")
at the Royal Netherlands Naval Academy ("KIM").
Below is a record of some of the digital photographs I took with my Olympus D-400 Zoom camera.
