So, I came to The Netherlands and I was introduced to everybody who deserve it (according to my boyfriend`s “ranking-of-important-people”). In the first week I have a little of sightseeing around Amsterdam and the surrenders, especially cute tiny villages with names that I can hardly remember or pronounce.
In the first days I had a taste of what would be my life in The Netherlands… you know a bit of this and that….
As everybody knows in The Netherlands the “marihuana” is legal and you can find it in the most different ways:
“Lolly Pops, marihuana flavor”
I didn´t try this yet… 1 euro.. is…deffinitely out of my “expat budget”, but, what can be always included in the supermarket list is cheese. I can`t believe I spent so much time of my life without know how good and extremely tasty is cheese!!! So since I am in the “cheese country” I have been eating like crazy… no question way my face looks like the moon (I am trying to reverse this situation with “pureskin” products that make my face green and more alike to an alien)
“Welcome to my paradise”
Millions of dutch people can´t be wrong, they have the best cheese ever!! I can`t still afford the expensive ones, but I enjoy the free samples at Albert Heijn. (I am a cheaper girl… so what?? )
I was also learned about “how-to-use-a-croquet-machine”. This is really important when you are having the munchies.
So here I show you step by step and for free how to deal with this machine.
“First choose the croquet and insert the coins”
“If you get your money back keep trying, it really worth it”
“There you have your croquet, take care it can be hot”
Well… my first choice of croquet was not the best.. so I don´t really like it.. but I was wise enough to try again.. and now I love It.. There is a wide options of flavor… so go and enjoy them.
After admired cheese and eating croquet we decided to go for something more cultural and typical from this country. Here I mix the best of my day.
“The flower market”
“Dutch people love to give and receive flowers”
“Do I really have to explain this?? It is Amsterdam!!
I have reached the end of this post.
Now it`s time to dedicate some hours to learn dutch. I have been practicing with the “flash cards of Anki” and it`s going very well.
