I agree with you about Leiden -- it really is the perfect size. Busy enough to have a lot of restaurants, cafes, and other city stuff, but small enough get around on foot if you want to take a stroll. We especially liked the green market! I'll have to find and put up my picture of a local taking a whole herring in one bite....
In response to your comment about a friend where my name came up. Unless it specified New York, most of the hits you will get for "Jay Cloidt" are for a sound-engineer and composer in the Bay Area of California. While I believe we share a common great-great-grandfather, it sounds like it was his name and not mine that you found. It's a really rare name, but there are 2 of us in the US. Sorry I couldn't help you.

G'day Suzana! Thanks for taking time to react to my Aussie sketches. Yes, we were in Australia & New Zealand most of October, on a "tour tour," and, despite the drawbacks of being herded on a bus we covered more than 7,000 miles by air & on the ground, from Sydney to Melbourne to Alice Springs & Uluru (Ayers Rock) to Cairns to Great Barrier Reef, then on over to Auckland & lots of wonderful places on both the North and South Islands. Even though we're great supporters of Untours, that concept wouldn't work in a nation/continent where the distances are so vast. The tour company, Tauck, does a fine job ---- if we have any complaint it's that their tours are too luxurious, therefore missing close contact with the locals. Cheers and Good on ya! Bob
I'm Joe, the brother of Jay Cloidt who has taken the untour. I read your question and suggest you Google "Jay Cloidt" and follow up with the Jay Cloidt who is a musician in California. I'd imagine he is the more likely one to have worked on a film with your friend. Just a thought. Good luck with your search.
I'm the "other" Jay Cloidt. I found my Jay counterpart's response to you while surfing around and wondered if we have a connection? I don't see your original comment here ...
In any case, nice to meet you (and hi to you again, too, Jay, if you're reading).
