Why Are We In A Place Called Venlo?

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Venlo is the location for the once-a-decade flower show in the Netherlands. It’s a really big deal! It is very close to the German border and over two hours by train from Amsterdam. I am very glad I don’t have to understand flowers and their language to enjoy the Floriade, but for everything else, well it’s Dutch (and greek) to me.  We are enjoying the show, but finding the language hard to decipher.

When I am in a foreign country I like to visit their “grocery” store and see what is on their shelves and prices etc (Nothing can compare to our produce!).  Well I picked up a great water bottle last night. Got back to the room and quickly poured a cup of the refreshing…vinegar!! It was even  near the bottled watered. I guess getting on the right bus is more important than understanding all the labels. It looked like water, really!
