Well this is my first update from the road. Right now I'm at a cybercafe in Utrecht, Netherlands, about 30 minutes train ride from Amsterdam. My Dutch friend that I met on my study abroad trip to the Netherlands 2 years ago allowed me to stay in her room for the week while she is away.
The past two days were spent traveling the streets of Amsterdam. I didn't bother going to the "Red Light District" or seeing any of those foolish "Sex Shows" or getting pulled up on stage! But anyway, I've been having a great time and meeting a lot of nice people.
Last night I met a few Israeli and dutch girls and helped them promote a Halloween party outside their parents club in downtown Amsterdam. The club is owned by an Israeli family and they were all very nice.
Tomorrow I will be going to Leiden in Holland and possibly Rotterdam. On Tuesday I'm coming back to Utrecht to watch the presidential elections with my Dutch friends, a cheering group of bush haters! I couldn't be more at home here.....
Then this weekend I am taking a train to the south with Esmee visiting some other cities which I can't pronounce.
I leave the Netherlands November 8th and then off to India. Hope everyone is doing well and keep emailing. And in case you are wondering, I am looking ouside into a darkened depressing cold Dutch sky.
