Fire Fighting Niece has almost finished her Contiki tour of Europe, whereby she visited London, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany and Austria and is now in wrapping it up in Amsterdam. Unfortunately a bug went through the tour group and while I don't know where, she had to have cortisone injection to enable her to properly breath. The photos I have seen don't indicate any illness. Here is what I said a few minutes ago on her Face Book page when she finally posted some of her own photos, rather than be tagged in others.
Terrific photos. I think you are now in Amsterdam. Do get clear about the difference between cafes and coffee shops and have fun, whichever you visit. Don't forget a canal boat tour, if only to see buildings at very odd angles and young men in party boats.
She has a friend in Amsterdam who she will stay with for a few days and then journey on to Britain and stay at least a couple of nights with R's oldest sister as she ricochets from there to London, Scotland and Ireland.
