have been 5 days in Europe now and everyday has been a surprising me. There are
so many differences here in Netherlands from the United State. One big
difference is that here they have roads for bicyclist. Almost everyone here
owns a bicycle. The people ride their bicycles here in warm and cold weather.
One thing that, I found fascinating are the canals. Everywhere I went, I’ve
seen canals. The other night, I went to the city of Alkmaar, and the canals
went threw the middle of the city. I found it very amazing. I have not
yet gone to the city of Amsterdam, but I am expecting to go before I head back
to the US. I have heard from my colleagues that the canals there give a more
unique appearance to the city. Also, the canals frequently appeared in the
farms. People here do a lot of farming. The animals that I have seen in farms
are mostly horses and goats. I hopefully will experience more in the next few
days. It has been unique experience in my life.
