Just let me know if you'd like me to do that, and I'll give him an e-mail. He'd probably be able to advise me on Ypres also.
I would really appreciate it if you would contact this friend because I really would like to make the most of my "free" time on this tour and am open to any help and all info.
I have 2 days on my own in Amsterdam before the rest of the tour arrives I had been hoping my Hotel, the Ramada Apollo Amsterdam Center, apparently a short tram ride to the train station,would be able to set this up but it is not in their "service".
As for Ypres we are doing a day thing and I was told to ask my tour director about what could be done to get me to the Menin Gate from our hotel in Lille-2 nights-for the Last post ceremony in the evening. I have 5 names from here on the Gate to photograph/video. At Vimy I have 40 and Tyne Cott 4 which we are doing as a group.
Let me know via my regular email as I don't always remember to check in here -too much taking up my grey matter.
