Yesterday was all interviews with journalists, followed by the signing in Rotterdam for a couple of hundred very nice people. After the signing the store gave me a present -- a bottle of green ink, an inkwell, and a glass-nibbed pen. Today the sun has stopped shining -- it looks grey and chilly out -- and I am off to the Elf Festival for most of the day, with a signing in Utrecht this afternoon. Am still standing, walking, smiling and signing. Actually, it being early morning, I'm still blinking sleepily and looking slightly rumpled. But you know what I mean.
