Have you been to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam? On our way there in 2003 my husband and I stopped by one of Amsterdam’s many cafes and partook in its herbal offerings so we had a GREAT time at the museum. Recently the museum published Van Gogh’s letters in digital and bound book versions. Apparently Vincent was an avid correspondent. The web site, www.vangoghletters.org, allows you to view over 900 letters to and from Van Gogh. Its pretty fascinating, if you like to read other people’s mail.
