She’s at first from Texas so it was neat obtaining yet another American who was intrigued in carrying out issues in a different way. 

Of program I was also fascinated with individuals biking and the extraordinary infrastructure that is designed to assist the use of bicycles. 

Virtually anyone, it appears, has a bicycle. 

I noticed so many styles of bicycles, together with some extremely interesting ones for delivering mail and food stuff, and types to hold tiny small children. I observed plenty of dad and mom and grandparents using all-around with far more than just one boy or girl. They were being all cycling experts!

You definitely require to seem at the ground to see which path goes exactly where. The good thing is matters have been frequently coloration coded, which makes a good deal of feeling. Cyclists usually have the proper of way!

I found myself on the lookout at the floor really frequently. There was just so much to see! Glance at this stonework. So numerous distinctive sorts in this sort of a small place.

This crossing in Haarlem is neat!

The flowers were being lovely and incredibly very affordable. There had been a lot of small outlets that experienced awesome flower arrangements, like these ones of hydrangeas and roses. What magnificent hues.

I didn’t comprehend that so several people today converse English in The Netherlands. Most shop assistants could talk a small English if I experienced a question or two. I didn’t have any difficulties, although after I ordered a slice of pizza at a minimal store, and the teen who assisted me obtained a small flustered with getting to discuss English. He was resourceful, although. He speedily pulled out his cell cellphone and made use of Google Translate to explain my purchase particulars.

Some collaging, also!

A person of the finest points about my trip was obtaining to satisfy up with a bunch of wonderful persons from the Collective. We fulfilled at a attractive household, hosted by my buddy Petra.

There had been all around 10 of us gathered at a massive desk, where we talked and laughed, and shared our projects and papers. These are some of Petra’s get the job done. Amazing!

Immediately after lunch we pulled out our newest assignments and obtained active, generating and mastering from every single other. 

It was this kind of a great atmosphere and even even though most of us experienced only satisfied, we ended up very relaxed with each individual other, it appeared to me.

I stayed in Velserbroek, not significantly from Haarlem. Every thing is really environmentally friendly. Not astonishing with the quantity of rain that they get. It was raining practically the complete time I was there–and I loved it! What a alter from dry California.

City centre in Haarlem. There ended up so lots of amazing stores to prevent in and have a glance. I bought a lot of unfastened tea from a shop identified as The Art of Tea. It’s so great to have tea in the morning at household and be reminded of in which I was.

If I could have match a write-up box like this into my suitcase, I severely would have viewed as it. What a natural beauty! (Petra, this a single is your neighbor’s!)
