an alternative plan for Queen's day when you get separated from your posse

There is an alternate more Zen-like plan for those who either A) don't like to plan, or B) get separated from their posse:

1 - Find a new posse or...

2 - Walk around for 20 minutes max. Then sit somewhere. Breathe. Despite what you think, you will not be any better off than where you are.

3 - Avoid the edges of the canals at all times and don't wear shoes that you like.

4 - Don't freak out at friends who don't return your text messages. As with any massive event in any city, cell networks get jammed and messages get delayed, often for many hours.
