my new home is not actually in Amsterdam, but the nearby town of Diemen. the commute to school doesn't seem to be that bad, as it looks like my school is only maybe ten kilometres away. my apartment building overlooks the dutch countryside, where i get to see horses grazing in a farmfield, which is comforting because it's not that far a leap from my home in ottawa, which overlooks a cornfield. i can't actually enjoy this view right now, as it is 5AM and still dark, but i can't sleep because my body thinks it is 10PM, or even 7PM if it is still living on West Coast time (and really, could you blame it if it was?)
everyone around here really does get around on bikes. i can't wait to get mine. then i'll get to look so cool too.
