    Bloemencorso 2013 Holland Flower Festival, youtube video.

    As you may have noticed I've not been around a lot on the website I'm currently in the Netherlands for the Flower festival, sadly my torn ankle tendons have stopped me being able to do a lot and I missed the Flower Parade, which I really wanted to see, here's a youtube video of the floats from yesterday:

    If you are ever in the Netherlands in April check here: Homepage - Bloemencorso Bollenstreek for the information about it, and make sure you get out to the Keukenhof gardens for some fantastic spring blooms, I'll get a few photos added soon.

    Oooh, what did you do to your ankle? Torn tendons don't sound like much fun.

    Tore right one back in 2009 operated on in 2011 - tore other right one 6 weeks later while at the Rugby World Cup in September 2011, neither have healed.

    Left rolled my ankle with full camera backpack as over compensating for my right in 2010, had it operated on in 2012 and they pushed the tendon into a groove the doctors etched into my ankle; it popped out of the groove that night and hasn't gone back in all the time, won't heal, loads of physio later and still pops out.

    Still have a walking stick, although I did not too bad today around Schipol Airport, just stayed there and watched planes taking off and landing as couldn't face the big weekend crowds at the gardens. Will be back there tomorrow with a few different lenses to take flower photos.
