@Jon & jackie: I've been a regular (5-6 times /year) visitor to SE1 for some years and now feel like it's my 2nd home. Regularly logging in at this forum to check waht's happening over there.
@boroughonian: ha, OK I like that one! No "coffeeshops" in my hometown (although liberals are the main political party in city council) and I prefer your pubs!

By the way: I almost hesitate to say this at a SE1 forum .... but are there any more Tottenham Hotspur fans down here?

Happy to admit that I am a Spurs fan!!

Keep taking the tablets Peter!

Tom, shouldn't that be "gehen auf den Blauen!" ?

I've no wish to be pedantic DJ but if anything it should be gehen auf "dem" blauen
in German, (I think.)

I was trying it in Dutch in honour of our guest from Amstelveen!

I have lived in Amstelveen, but have a strong preference for SE1. Maar, mijn hart ligt bij Ajax.

Good team Ajax, no argument, but in the Netherlands I like PSV Eindhoven, or you can travel a leisurely 130 clicks south via Antwerpen and catch a good Belgian team, Anderlecht, in Brussells.

@ Maurits: where did you live in Amstelveen? I live in the Bankras area and during my school time visited the Casimir College.

And regarding Dutch soccer: yes, Ajax play their home matches just a few miles away. But having Frisian family, it should be SC Heerenveen to me.

I've had a flat in SE1 for 20 years while oscillating back and forth to Zurich, the Hague, Houston, New York, E.Sussex, Kent and a few other spots. Presently in New Jersey, but looking forward to SE1 in a couple of weeks if I can make it through Heathrow.

Then we'll never be seeing you again Mark, you'll be living at Heathrow. Take some good photos!
