But, I did rather enjoy it.
*and* John Williams did the music! Woot! ;)
My favourite is still Last Crusade though :)
They forgot to change the aspect ratio when the movie started, and so the whole thing was all completely squished. Luckily someone else raced out and told them and they fixed it pretty quickly.
Stu spent much of today catching up on sleep :)
Had Annie and the girls over for a while too today which was nice.
Japan. Narita. Very tired. It being 10am where I was, and having next to no sleep all night. It's 5pm here. Getting in an overnight plane later on. Wonder if we'll sleep any on that. If not we're going to be an accident waiting to happen on the long drive home :(
At the free Yahoo internet cafe to use it for a bit cause there's not much else better to do...
Using our last bit of internet before we pack up for our last day here. Going to be a *very* long trip home....
Anyways we went down the same bit of road this morning looking carefully at the speed limits, and sure enough, the last one before the camera is 80. So unless there's a hidden sign somewhere or some other indication of the change of speed limit (and even if there is), I'm gonna be pretty pissed if we get a fine :(
Our hotel in Dresden is right over a big pedestrian mall/plaza thing.. and it being Saturday night there's live music happening. The music stopped a while ago after "Strangers in the Night" so they could have some fireworks.. so that was bad enough that it was still in my head... but the fireworks just finished and the song is back!!! arrghghhghghhh!!!
A most momentous occasion!
Now maybe I should get on with researching Dresden and Prague .. hrmm.. :)
I'd post a photo, but the Eee PC photo tools are completely lame and don't have the time to fiddle with anything else at the moment.
Wish I knew what it was...
UPDATE: seems it's "Klassik-Radio" - 101.3 :)
I've so far seen *one* public toilet since we've been here - at the main station for 1.10 euro. Where is everyone meant to go?? Yesterday one of the places we ate had a toilet, but this doesn't seem to be universal. Most distressing!!
2. Where do you expect tourists to do their laundry?
Presumably many hotels would have a laundry service, but ours doesn't. By chance we found a waschsalon so have bookmarked this for when we're in other cities...
I have to admit I fell in love with it very quickly. The keyboard is a bit hard to type on, the screen is microscopic, the drive is tiny (4gb)... *but* it's solid state so very little chance of the hard drive just dying, wireless just works, it's unlikely to get viruses, it's small and light, devices just work with it.
Of course Stu also likes it, so it's been a bit of an ongoing battle to get to use it ;) He thinks we shoulda gotten two. Which isn't *such* a silly idea.. hehe
