Tonight someone was speaking to me in Dutch and I didn’t realise it. I just understood as if they were speaking English.
So I had “the moment” on one of my last nights in Amsterdam. Oh! Cruel fate, why do you mock me?
I will really miss this city. There is so much that I didn’t see.
*note to family: the title of this post refers to the Alanis Morissette song “Ironic”, and is not some coded message about my emotional state. So stop worrying.
