(More) reasons to be cheerful

I sent an email to someone in Melbourne today and received one of those out-of-office replies that reminded me that he would be “vigorously celebrating the Melbourne Cup for the long weekend“, as people do in Melbourne at this time of the year. I could count the number of times I’ve felt homesick since I’ve been in the Netherlands on one hand, but at least four of them have been when the Melbourne Cup was on.

Now THAT’s something to look forward to next November!

PS. And here is what its all about.
