My laptop is open and the kid is engulfed in Dora the Explorer so I am blogging. I am sick! :( Whenever the weather changes I always get sick. I don’t know if sick is the right word. It’s just a cold. I can’t stop coughing, sneezing, I breathe funny…when I can breathe! It sucks. And of course today I am working all day because the Dutch school system knows when I’m sick or hungover and decides to schedule off days for the kids on those days! Thanks guys!
The weekend is upon us again! Sheesh! Feels like the weekend was just here! I can’t believe I’m complaining about the weekend coming so soon, but here I am doing just that. Maybe the week hasn’t flown by. It probably just feels like it because I had a wild night out on a Tuesday. Hahaha, Only in Amsterdam can you still find a crowded dance club on a Tuesday night.I went out with Dev, Tony, and some of his military friends who were visiting Amsterdam. We had a great time dancing and drinking until about 4 am! My actual weekend was pretty nice too. Per was here from Sweden. We had a good time just hanging out and enjoying each other’s company/Amsterdam. Well, I did…hope he did too. We took a day trip to the Hague and saw the “The International Tribunal for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed in the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia since 1991” or the ICTY. Long name, eh? I didn’t know much about it or what went on there, but Per explained the history and importance of it in great detail. I feel like I learn so much about…EVERYTHING when I’m around that kid. He knows…EVERYTHING. It’s kind of creepy. We also visitied the Peace Palace and walked around for hours talking. Good times. I’m visiting him in just 3 weeks. Can’t wait!
