Back home again ...

Late Friday we arrived back home again from a really nice holiday in Wales.

As our Canterbury hotel was close to the Ferry in Dover, we could take an earlier Ferry to Calais. Traffic was easy until we reached the Brussels area. The navigation system in the car did change the directions every 5 minutes, based on the latest traffic news. As the ring highway around the city was too crowded it finally decided to guide us directly through the city.

Would have been a great idea without construction work on the selected route 😉. So we had a nearly 1 hour sightseeing tour in the city with a lot of stop and go traffic. Still room for improvement in the A.I. and the decision making processes of the navigation system, BUT you always have the choice to overrule the system and decide on your own. Even easier when you have a map of the region or city 👍. 

The picture was taken on Thursday on our way back from Hastings to Canterbury in RYE https://www.ryesussex.co.uk/, a funny play on words between the local Fish and Chips (https://www.historic-uk.com/CultureUK/Fish-Chips/) shop and the famous Novel by J. D. Salinger - The Catcher in the Rye https://www.britannica.com/topic/The-Catcher-in-the-Rye.

What I like best is a book that's at least funny once in a while. What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though. J. D. Salinger, American - Novelist January 1, 1919 - January 27, 2010
