Silent Night

I have no net access at home and I’ve been feeling lazy—something about moving does that.

Suffice it to say, my furniture is in the new place and, as of this writing, I am about 80% unpacked. I have all my clothing to put away, and a lot of dishes to wash. I expect to […]

New Dutch Stuff

The Netherlands was my first European country.

It is also the country that I’ve visited the most, other than Germany, where I am living. Most of my trips follow a predictable pattern: I stay in Rotterdam, travel over to Dordrecht, dance at the Gay Palace, and eat at the same places. There are minor variations, […]

Inadequate Feeling

Wednesday night it was late and I was having a post-dinner drink with Monsieur Namur.

We were at a very nice French restaurant located in the heart of Rotterdam, located a few short steps from my hotel. Over the course of the evening I’d started with three pre-dinner white beers, followed by two glasses of […]

Troublesome Tire

A few years back, ironically enough, when I was on a trip with MT, I had a very heteroAdam moment.

It was one of those moments when I accomplished something that no fag in their right mind should be able to accomplish: MT and I were camping […]

Alive in the Netherlands!


Originally uploaded by elmada.

I am happy to report that RealMT and I are both alive in the Netherlands. We had an excellent time in Prague and then, catching an early flight, flew to Amsterdam Saturday morning.

Today we were forced, due to a lack of luggage storage lockers at the Amsterdam […]
