Kwi Nam charmed the Dutch

This trip is a great learning experience with other four countries.  I am impressed with the different countries use of the English language.  English is not a first language for anyone who is in the group that I am in, but we haven't had a problem communicating. Our group's focus is about the treatment of PTSD in children 0-8.  I love Holland.  I like the landscape, its such a small country, compared to the US.  It is neat to see how the people are organized and respectful of the landscape.  It is really neat to see all of the bicycles that are on the roads here.  I saw small children on their bicycles, and they were so confident.  It is so tidy here, there are canals that help to keep the land dry.  Everyone is so fit here, which since I enjoy running is really fun to see.  I have been able to see some of the city while I was running.  It was nice that there is a place for both pedestrian and bike paths, they are everywhere!  I have made friends with students from Netherlands, they are very kind, respectful, they took the time to tell about the school and this beautiful country.  I hope to come back some day.
