    Yes. There are rumblings that the hotel quarantine will be dropped in the next few weeks which would allow us to have an easier time of getting back to Canada. Fingers crossed.

    Vegging Out

    The white asparagus season is upon us. The Dutch Neighbour lucked into three kilos (about 6.6 lbs for the American heathens) of the vegetable crack and prepared it in the traditional Netherlands way. And, lucky for us, she shared some with us:

    Two Canadians Don't Walk Into A Bar...-whiteasparagus-jpg

    You basically boil the asparagus, prepare a hollandaise-like sauce and serve it with boiled eggs, potatoes and ham. It was lovely. She also informed us that the go-to place for the seasonal dish is "Bingo". Have at 'er...

    The Spouse enjoyed "Vaccine Freedom" by hitting the Do It Center and Price Smart for the first time since we arrived. Much excitement at the discovery of a three-way splitter for the outdoor faucet. It's the little things! Thank god we're out again. One observation: people are completely ignoring the aisle arrows now (something I wish would hang around after the pandemic) so it's basically a free-for-all in Aruba retail world. Back to "normal". We're still masking though probably even beyond June 9th when the protocol lifts. Still not sure about variants and we can't risk it.

    Sometimes, it pays to be married to a producer of the nightly news!
