[This entry is from my 1976 handwritten diary. On November 19, 2011 I posted this to my blog and I added this bracketed language, the photograph and the hyperlinks. I was in 7th grade when I wrote this journal entry. I typed this post as I wrote it, including the mistakes, so you can see how I wrote back then. On March 30, 1976 my family moved from Chicago, Illinois, USA to Amsterdam, Netherlands for about four months. I wrote in my diary frequently during that time, and I plan to post all the entries to this blog.]
This isn’t very important but I still wan’t to say it, “It’s April fools day” but since wer’re not in scoll, I didn’t notice it at all. Andy and I didn’t even prank any jokes on Andy!
Finaly, we are here in our house in Holland. Man, since tuesday, March 30th all the way till this afternoon, Yes, it took that long a time. first, (back at home, just when it’s time to go the cab we ordered came about 30 min. after we called, (but that doesn’t make any difference, because we were already 2 hours early, and had to wait.
When we finally get on the plane, at 9:45 or so, we find out that we have dinner a 12:00 midnight well we finally get of plane and get a cab to the train station we take a train from luxembourg to Amsterdam in 8 hours.
Then we find a cab and go to our house, It’s nice, I’ll tell you about it tomorrow.

We got off the ground (runway I mean at 10 minutes to 10pm.
Today is the big day. WE ARE GOING TO HOLLAND. I am writing this diary on the airplane, it’s a DC8! I don’t like it very much because it is so small. We left home at aprox 5:00 o’clock pm and we got on the plane at aprox 9:45pm. Before we got on the plane we had a little bit of food to eat, Andy and I split a hamburger. It wasn’t very much. We are supposed to have dinner on the plane, but that will be at aprox 11:45pm (a little late I think.) Even with taking time out for dinner we still had to wait an hour or so. But mom bought us some snoppy [Snoopy] books so the time went by fast reading those, (I finished more than half)
Well, I think I felt sort of big while I was carrying around all my camera equipment and my camera, I was sort of scared that my camera bag would set off the mettle detector, but, it didn’t.
At the moment I am sitting in the airplane writing (10:30pm) for the lady to bring the soda pop (she’s almost here)
We expect to be in Iceland at 3:15am and get to Holland some time tomorrow.
