The first week in Holland

Family, friends and a good time in the flat country!

In the first few days I saw everyone from my family and introduced Shoshannah to them. Of course I also showed Weert to her and we just a chill first couple of days. On Saturday we went out with my old friends and sister. It was good being in a normal Dutch bar and we had an awesome time. At least that night was awesome, the Sunday was horrible ;-)
The rest of that week we used to prepare all documents for Shoshannah's university and went to Maastricht for the first time on Thursday. According to her all cities and buildings in the Netherlands make her feel like she is walking around in Disneyland... I'll take that as a good thing! On Saturday morning my parents Shosh and I went to Maastricht again but this time with all the stuff to decorate Shosh's new room in my grandma's house. We also fixed her a bike so she is completely set for her year as a student in Holland.
That same day we also went to Utrecht to celebrates Mar's birthday. After a couple of drinks at his place he had a surprise for us. He took us to the "Vecht" (a river near Utrecht) where he had rented a boat. Coolers filled with drinks and snacks, music and people that felt like a party... it was absolutely great!!! The weather was good, the views very nice and the atmosphere even better.

Later that night we went out in Utrecht and were planning to meet up with Marianne who lived with us in China. We found her but she wasn't alone... Stephanie was also there (another girl from China)! It was great seeing them again and we planned to meet up again on Sunday for coffee!
The Sunday was once again a day that hardly existed... but after a slow start, we went to Marianne's place, had coffee and talked and later we played a game of monopoly with my sister and her boyfriend.

Tonight I'm going to take Shosh to Maastricht because she will have the "Inkom" this week. The Inkom is the introduction week for new students at Maastricht University and I am soooo jealous that she gets to go and I can't join..! Although I'll probably go there on Friday to catch the closing party.
Besides all this fun I am also busy applying for a job. The application for the job I really want is going very well. The letter, IQ and personality test, first interview and the psychological assessment all went very well. This week I'll get an email about the final interview! Let's hope it all works out :-)

That's all folks!
