Getting on the plane tomorrow at JFK but won't be anywhere near the net until Tuesday, so here are some highlights.

The National Gallery: rooms full of Rembrandt, rooms full of Vermeer, Van Dyke, Raphael, Goya, van Eyck, Holbein

and the only Leonardo this side of the Atlantic.

Kathleen takes in the culture.

The Dutch still lifes glowed off the walls, so beautiful they make you weep with joy.

When I was a kid, it was the Italians that did it to me, but now I think I'm all for the Dutch.

Those Prots just look so happy, and their world so clean and ordered.




Yes, more.

YES, the teenagers at my school give the Dutch the vote as well.

Bizarre, but true.
