The Commute

It's Where I Live Weekend over at wild_photos this weekend. Unfortunately, I didn't prepare for it in time and so have no pictures to show of where I live...

...but yesterday, I did take some of where I work! Or rather, of my way to and from work. Taken with my mobile phone camera, they're not the best quality, but they'll serve to give you some idea of why I'm so glad I won't have to do this every day next week:



Early morning. At the time, I still had to learn that a moving bus and a handheld camera/phone do not produce the best quality picture. The woman with the orange purse in her lap is my colleague Kim. I didn't even notice her until I looked at the picture!


I arrive at the office while the rosey-fingered dawn paints the sky.


The day is done, for me as it is for the woman who sells oliebollen (Dutch doughnuts, a seasonal treat) from a trailer. You can't really see her, but she's cleaning the counter prior to closing up shop.


A final glimpse of Schiphol Plaza as I hurry to catch my train.


Also, haircut! As I was running around town this afternoon, taking care of some final errands before I leave for Paris in the morning, I caught sight of a sign outside a hairdresser's that said "NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY TODAY!" -- so I went in on a whim and came out freshly rinsed, cut and blow-dried a mere 45 minutes later.

You're beautiful!

We have the same haircut. It's prettier on you, tho'.

Yes! You're not graying as I am, either.

Thank you. I feel great, too -- esp. as today, for the first time in two years, I was able to walk in high heels all. day.long!

The hair is looking good - and you can see in your face that you have lost weight.

I'm pleased with the hair -- also because they were cheaper by about 50% than my regular hairdresser, which leaves me a bit more money to play with on my hols!

I do look a bit leaner in the face, don't I? I'll have to get used to that.

Loving the haircut! Very funky and no offence but you look much younger!
