Wonderful, Paco.

  Frank, I´m not coming. Wonderful?  ;D ;D ;D ::)  Misunderstanding somewhere

  Real pity. I still can try to play from here but the point was the meeting itself. Have fun!

Big thank you to the organisers from me as well and just a note that I will meet you in the morning and for lunch, however, unfortunately I cannot join you for dinner. Looking forward to seeing you all!

Usually the afterparties are the best - However,,, I'm sure this will be an excellent pre party  8)

A last-minute tip: small notebook and pen may come handy to keep track of ideas as well as shots made for each idea. Although it may sound easy to keep track of 3 shots per theme, the excitement of the day may distract you. Well, at least it happened to me although that was with six themes.

Obviously shooting 1000 photos and selecting afterwards is also possible. ;-)

Thank you all who have organised the main event and the pre party. I have found some nice bottles of Bordeaux and Corbiere to not let the pre party get too dry. I am not sure about the after party and how many bottles we might need. My cellar has a lot to offer so we might upload some bottles to Jakov's place.....

Denis, who was there in Maastricht, will also be with me. Can you count him for reservations?

Thanks.

A few (food) tips :

Don't miss the excellent Wiener style pastries at
'Wiener Konditorei ' at the Lange Poten 2511 EE The Hague
http://www.wienerkonditorei.nl/banketbakkerij/

I'm a fan of their 'Sachertorte' for over 35 years now, despite no longer living in The Hague
for close to 20 years now still make a detour for it when I happen to be in the neighbourhood

If you like Indonesian style food and snacks, my longtime favorite foodplace is
Toko Semarang at the Danckertsstraat 77, 2517 TG The Hague
http://tokosemarang.org/

Don't expect a flashy/trendy looking interior, but what they lack in 'presentation'
they more then make up with the quality/taste of the snacks
Don't forget to try their 'Lemper' - sticky rice rolls with a chicken/cocos filling-
and the Loempia Semarang -baked springrolls with a spring bamboo root/chicken filling-
Ask for the special (handmade) sauce they have in a small jar in the cooler  ::)

If you're more into a 'real' restaurant to eat your Indonesian food, visit
Restaurant Dewata at the Beeklaan 269 2562 AH  The Hague
http://www.dewata.nl/

Again not a flashy/trendy looking place, actually quite modest looking from the outside
The food has the same 'quiet' appearance, but the rich, yet not overly spicy taste will be a pleasant surprise
Their Tahu Gimbal - birdsnests made of tauge, shrimps and tofu, with white rice and a small bowl of sweet soy sauce -
keeps me coming back for well over 30 years now (yes, I'm a creature of habit  ;) )

And oh yeah, The Hague has some real nice locations for eg  fashion photography too  :P
