My new friends from California, Ray and Susan, let me photograph them, and I let them photograph me and Izzy, but it was mainly Izzy that they were after. Many visitors have been very friendly to me and Susan and interested in talking. Ray maintains an eclectic web site. ( See www.memorybanque.com) They both had very nice scarves, and most Amsterdam women wear scarves, possibly due to the wind, temperature, and not infrequent rain. You can see from his website that Ray likes clothes that are colorful and interesting, 170 degrees away from my relationship to clothes. I only regret that they had to leave Amsterdam and my Susan and I did not have a chance to get to know them more. We only had twenty minutes together.
