My weekend adventure in Amsterdam ended today. As my program in the Hague begins tomorrow, I got up, got breakfast at the cafe from yesterday, then took the train to Den Haag (The Hague) – the capital of international law. There are about 350 people in the program I am attending, so we are basically everywhere. Inevitably, I ran into a really sweet girl on the train (I explored Amsterdam this weekend with another girl from the program), and together we taxied to our home for the next 3 weeks.
The hotel has a series of single-sex apartments with 8 rooms of 2 people each, 4 bathrooms, and a kitchen to share between the 16 of us (plus a giant communal balcony for literally every room in the hotel). Each room is assigned by country – and I’ve been placed with the Canadians 😂 (plus 3 pretty awesome girls from the UK, Mexico and Peru.)
Off to a pretty good start!
P.S. I’m still alive Dad. And have been adopted (again) as an honorary Canadian 🇨🇦
