Doing Business in Europe 2012

My experience so far on this trip has been amazing. I’m writing this blog as we drive home from Amsterdam and there is so much to say. We arrived yesterday around noon and went on a guided tour of Rijks museum. It was so impressive to see all the beautiful works of art; my favourite was of course the Night Watch. Once we finished there we went to an Italian restaurant for dinner; it was delicious. I had lasagna and it was so filling. We stayed at a hostel overnight which I was pretty nervous about, but it was actually pretty nice. I was worried it was going to be dark and dingy, but in reality it was more like a hotel or dorm rooms. After a nice sleep in some comfy beds we got up and had some breakfast. Once we got back into town we had a relaxing canal tour where we got to see different parts of the city. From there we split into groups and essentially all the girls went shopping and the guys checked out the red light district and a bar. In our separate groups we got to check out the Anne Frank museum; it was insane to see the attic and all the artifacts. When we walked around there was no furniture in there, but they had photos of recreations and I can’t imagine having to hide in such a confined space for so long.

After a long day of shopping and visiting the museum we were all pretty ready for the ride home so we could nap. Unfortunately when we got back to the parking garage, the van I was riding in (Team Robyn) had been broken into, and mine as well as two other student’s stuff had been stolen. Luckily we ended up getting our stuff back from Security. Unluckily we still had to deal with the two broken windows which eventually got ‘repaired’. I’m currently sitting next to it writing as the thick plastic is flopping in the wind.

That about sums up the two days we spent in Amsterdam, so I’m going to have a nap which I desperately need.
