Drinking a cup of White Moon tea and listening to Soundscapes (fabulous BBC podcast) all the while looking out at the passing landscape. My idea of happiness.

Keeping up the rail system is a continual process. I love looking at the construction sites and how the workers so nonchalantly go about their business so close to the continue hubbub of traffic. It would also be interesting to know how many people and how many steps were taken before the markings got on the wall of the rail track.
Spring arrived last night. The East winds burst through the countryside and shook the budding leaves out of branches. The lilac hedges add bright contrast to the raps fields. I sit in "my" train speeding through the most magnificent landscape and blue skyscape joyously thinking about dinner tonight with dear friends in Amsterdam.

I am on my way to Paris and have the joy of traveling 1st class. It's my 1st time. My 1st impressions:
a) very quiet so far (can it be that 1st class travelers take the quiet zone literally?)
b) surprisingly quite a few passengers have brought along their picnic packages (more about this topic another day)
c) the department smells pleasantly of coffee, since there is a steward constantly serving new passengers with coffee.

When it comes to the DB, my belief in its greatness has been reinforced a thousand times.
