Doing Business in Europe 2012

So, this adventure is already more than two thirds complete. It is hard to believe, but this is the beginning of our final week here in Groningen. Every single day has provided us with an unexpected surprise or experience; most of which have all turned out for the best.

Our trip to Amsterdam this past weekend was no exception! It was jam packed with informative and fun activities, one of which was the trip to the Rijks Museum. I for one have never been a huge history buff, but all that changed as soon as I walked in the doors. Hearing the stories behind the paintings was very interesting; many of the works and artifacts date back to the 1600's during the time of the Dutch East Indies Trading Company. The stories behind the pieces really sparked my curiosity, and I can say with certainty that from now on I will be looking for the story behind the painting or silver platter!

The whole group of us had a great experience in Amsterdam, and none of us were ready to leave when the time came! So, some of us ended up staying a little longer than others, but that is a story for another time!!
