Off to Brussels
Yikes, it is early. Here's proof how early... Its coming up to 0548 and I'm standing on a chilly platform near Amsterdam. Bussum Zuid if you want to Google Earth it. Today I'm off to Brussels for a meeting at the European Commission. This is the first train out - should be there by 9.15 am - delays permitting. I see that you can at last buy train tickets to Belgium and Germany at the Dutch Railways machines. But when they shut most of the ticket offices along this line, I suppose they had to.
