 Today was presentation day. Every year I am amazed at the creativity and energy that goes into presenting the research.  Each group chooses the method to present what they have found through their research the range this year was an original song to start the presentation, a video, a psycho drama and games.  The day was topped off with all the students and faculty headed to dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant in Alkmaar.  The beauty of the project is watching students come together and bridge not only language and culture but personal differences.  Back to the bungalow Park and ready for bed and impromptu song session topped off the day!

Today was a very interesting day. I was amazed at how fast and easy our presentations came together. I finally feel like I can relax a little and just have some fun! So we had dinner at this amazing restaurant and I was able to sit with many of the students from Norway and Germany and discuss everyday subjects. I also have been able to utilize some of my old skills speaking German and also have learned some Dutch and Norwegian. After dinner we went to a local pub and had more fun just relaxing and hanging out. I almost went salsa dancing but preferred to just sit still and people watch. After our bus ride we met at the Norwegian bungalow and ate sheep and cheese and enjoyed further company. This trip so far has been very enlightening as far as getting to know other cultures and amazing to have such an opportunity to meet new friends.
