Anne had to work today, and she starts early, so I got up with her and caught the same train. Instead of getting off, I went on to Arnhem where I had arranged to meet Arthur, another SWC member I've known for many many years. Unfortunately, when I got off the train, I went in the opposite direction, and of course Arthur was no where to be seen. After shivering in the cold for 20 minutes, it occured to me to look at the information map outside the station, and it was then I realised that there was 'another way out', so doubled back and finally found Arthur. He said I was easy to spot because of the confused look on my face!!!
We proceeded to Burgers Zoo in Arnhem. The drive there was really pretty - lots of forest and trees - it was really stunning with the autumn colours too!
Arnhem zoo had a few animals that we don't get in Auckland zoo. Unfortunately my foot was incredibly sore that day so I was struggling a bit, but I did get some photos... The penguins...
Afterwards she took me to this great place by the canal in Utrecht, that does the proper dutch pancakes! They were delicious! I had ham cheese and pineapple, and on the other half a fruit one - but can't remember what I had now. I know I had a white beer which was divine. Perhaps that is why I can't remember!!!
