Leiden is lovely.
It's full of old buildings and canals, so much that random photos tend to look like postcards. The town centre is largely pedestrian and bicycles, so it's remarkably quiet and sweet-smelling for a town that size.
So we did a lot of strolling about, stopping for hot chocolate or coffee. We managed quite a bit of sight-seeing too.
And I got off the hamster wheel and had time to think.
I can't get the book out by September 20th unless I do a bodge job. I'd much rather do a good job, and release it a little late. So the pressure's off. But knowing me, I have to watch that I don't dawdle all the way to Christmas.
Still, Leiden was lovely.
