& Bob Jung in Amsterdam We were pleasantly surprised when we could welcome Cathie
and Bob Jung in Amsterdam from the 15th till the 20th of
December 2000. Bob had been invited to Berlin with some
colleagues for a medical congress.

We have already published a lot about Cathie
and Bob. Nevertheless each time there are interesting new
facts to be mentioned. Cathie still has her fascinating
waist of 38 cm. (15 inches). It's common knowledge that
Cathie wears her corset day and night except when she takes
That Cathie fascinates Bob by her waist is not a secret. To
show his admiration Bob has decided to do something very
special. To have his corsetted wife with him day and night,
he has put a tattoo on his left upper leg. The tattoo shows
Cathie in a black satin corset, manufactured by Madame Medeq.
Cathie is wearing black stockings, knee-length boots and
gloves. The result is brilliant and we can say the tattoo is
their arrival on Schiphol from Germany there was initially a
considerable problem. At checking in, in Germany, luggage is
kept separate because something might be wrong with the
contents of the suitcases. Because Cathie always takes along
a large collection of corsets in her luggage, it is not
surprising that at the luggage inspection site the warning
bells rang when their luggage was scanned. The same thing
happened when Cathie walked through the control gates.
Cathie and Bob were allowed to pass through the control
gates after if was clear that their carry-on luggage
contained nothing dangerous. However the trunks with the
corsets of Cathie stayed at the airport in Germany.
Consequently they arrived in the Netherlands with only their
hand luggage. Fortunately their orther luggage was delivered
the next day in Amsterdam. Loss of this luggage would have
been a real disaster. Her corsets are mostly unique pieces.

Amsterdam had been already decorated with beautiful
Christmas scenery, which gave an extra cachet to their stay
in the capital. We also visited the delicious Stoop
restaurant in the Jordan district in Amsterdam.
