Alkmaar and towns nearby. I love the houses and buildings here because they
look so little and so close to each other compared to the United States. The designs
of the houses are alike but different types of form and material. They look
amazing! Also, they have some kind of grass on the roof that helps for
insulation. It feels like I am living in a fairytale movie. Everything is so
Today was the first day that I am officially in Europe, or at least the first day I was fully awake. First we
started our day going to the Zaanse schans. This was a unique experience for me
the Museum was like taken out of a movie. I did so many things that I never
thought I would do. One of them was playing with stilts (see picture) and it was harder than
