Back in June 2009, Daniel, a handful of his old ex-pat friends from Cambodia, and I made our way to The Netherlands, where a pair of their pals from Phnom Penh, Johnny and Aekje, were to be married.  After the wedding in Friesland, we headed down to Amsterdam, where we’d rented a lovely apartment overlooking one of the canals.   There was much traipsing about, attempts (and mostly failures) to find good eats, a lot of napping (Dave, above, is sleeping through a tender moment on Dutch television), and a great deal of photographs to be taken.  One night we ended up at a bar not far from the train station, where we discovered the joys (and morning after effects) of genever with a regular named Harrie.  I’ve not taken a long holiday since, so these photos, taken with the Yashica, are especially poignant and dear to me.

    Poignant and dear indeed. Great to see them again. Early days with the Yashica, right?
