         Our last day here in Holland was first spent at the University during our final feedback session, then we had the rest of the day free to do as we pleased.

Day one for the Americans by Regan Davenport:

We arrived in Amsterdam ahead of schedule. The clean air, the clean stores even in the airport, instantly took us aback and of course the drive out to the bungalow was incredible. Before we even saw where we were going to be staying, or meeting anyone from Germany Norway and Jessica of the Netherlands in person, the drive from the airport was beautiful.
