Noord Holland Part IV: Zaanse Schans and Zaandijk
Once I tell her I'm visiting from California, she lights up and begins to tell me about her travels through California in a VW bus in the late 60's, early 70's. Before I can sit down with my cappuccino and truffle, she pulls up a chair and continues to talk about her travels. She remembers the smells, sounds, and that gorgeous California coast, which she describes in great detail. Her favorite city, San Francisco. One day I will go back. The young lady who assisted me initially, chimes in with her travels to Japan and before you know it we are sharing experiences. Three women from different age groups just enjoying each others company and learning through storytelling.
