so...amsterdam hey?

thanks to everyone who made an effort to come greet. this was awesome
i miss them and this is why
some predeparture posing. carine tymbios style
this is the common room at college. there is usually some korean kid jamming the amelie theme songs on the piano, which makes this a great space for feeling european
lovely lea, my new german flatmate 

this is how i get around
views from my window

ingrid and cath. glad i found them :)
I'm not Dutch enough to attempt this...
... so I just walked on the ice instead

neat little russian constructivist sculpure on stadhouderskade

museum plein. rijks up ahead, van gogh on the left


ingrid before the cast...

It's been three weeks since I've arrived and here is my first blagh update. ever. what ish up? I'm currently living in the Northern hemisphere, a bicycle has become my only means of transport, I've seen van Gogh, Monet and Gauguin for the first time, I've walked on water, I broke my record by writing 17 letters and 4 postcards in 8 days, I've mastered cooking and I'm now a proud maker of toast and pasta, I'm officially a Dutch resident for the next 6 months, I've started drinking beer, oh and I cut my hair! To my friends and family, I miss ya'll dearly, but so far, Amsterdam is treating me well. Here are the photos of everything.
