Adventures in Netherland
Wow, it's been forever since I updated. Sorry 'bout that. My hard drive crashed so I had to buy a new one therefore I was without a computer for a little while. Not too much has been going on here. I just hang out and go to class. On Sundays Vaida, Viktorya, Kim and I always eat lunch together. First we had Korean food then last week we had Lithuanian food. This week is going to be my turn...yikes. The food they cooked was so good so I hope mine measures up. I think I'm going to make fried chicken and mashed potatoes and corn or something like that. On Friday night Tehri and I decided to go out so we were walking around town looking for a place to go and we knew we didn't want to go to a club cause we aren't big dancers and we had been to this rock 'n roll bar on Monday night and it was really cool so we decided to go back there. So we walk all over town looking for the place and we finally find the street its on and we got so excited cause we were super tired of walking. Full of excitement, we walked up to the bar, looked around, and realizing we could never go in started laughing. Now you might ask why we couldn't go in. Well, the entire place was surrounded by goth rock kids dressed in all black with lots of piercings and spiky hair. Keep in mind that I have nothing against hardcore rockers, we just both realized that it wasn't really OUR crowd hanging out in there. So we kept walking and we found this bar where we could sit outside so we decided to give it a go. After sitting there for a bit we realized that it wasn't really our crowd either. It was like the late 20s early 30s professional singles bar. Ooops! Some of our other friends walked by and came to join us so we ended up having a good time. On Saturday morning I went with Vaida, Viktorya, Kim, Roberto, and I can't remember the other guys name to Harlingen. It's a coastal town with ports and a beach and whatnot. We had a good time. I was sooo tired from the night before though. I am posting pictures of the trip and a few others that I have of Leeuwarden so for those of you who have been bugging me about some pics I finally have some. We are going to Amsterdam this Saturday to go to the Van Gogh museum and Maddam Toussad's (spelling?). Then I think we may hit up the Red Light District at night. Anyway should be a good time, I'm looking forward to it. Last night I had to take money to the ESN for an Island trip. We are going to the Island Terschelling for a weekend on October 13, 14, 15. I'll turn 21 on a Island...can't get much better than that right?
