The captain of the boat we sailed in through the canals of Amsterdam. He seemed pleased with my request for a photograph, which made me very happy too. He talked very well throughout the tour, explaining the special places and sights. He knew five languages! He spoke in French, German, Dutch, English and Chinese too, much to the amusement of the Chinese tourists. But he spoke mostly in English, which all tourists knew and understood well. I don’t think I will meet him again, but I brought his smile back along with me to India.
