This is another blog in my every-so-often "memorable moment in MTA history" series. Throughout our Europe by Eurail trip in 2009 we found street musicians everywhere. But this moment in Amsterdam was very special. One of our boys, Mark Gilbert, had only a few months earlier started taking mandolin lessons and we happened upon a guitarist-mandolin duo. The mandolin player was happy to give a turn to this American musician. It was a really great moment in MTA history.
I never imagined that when I started taking kids on travel trips in 1978 that I would still be taking trips today! It has been a great ride and I'm looking forward to more.
