goodbye barn

just sent kelly home on her way! we had a really good week and we had plenty to do. Our first night here I took her out and we had a great night. She got her first experience on a bike...and lets just say it was her last. I guess I can say at least I have great bike skills from living in Holland. Another night we went to our dutch friend Bram's house in a neighboring village called Roermond. All of us from the third floor in avant garde went and had a really fun night. We got to see a real dutch village and all the cute, nice dutch houses! We also had a lot of barbques here and just a great time hanging out. 

Now it is coming to the end and i am starting to say goodbye to people and it is getting really tough. I am finally at the point where I have to strategically plan my days out because of the limited time. I never saw this time coming! I hate every second of the end and I am finding it nearly impossible to say goodbye to friends here.

the bike tally

the bike situation has been ridiculous! between the four of us (me meg mike and trevor) we have gone through a ridiculous amount of bikes.

and the tally....

meg- 1 bike. but it just got stolen. outside the bar meg didnt lock her bike up and asked me "will my bike get stolen?" my response: "yes." but did she lock her bike up? no. did it get stolen? yes. what a shame. her bike was the most reliable and made it all 5 months!

me- 3 bikes! i am the only one left with a bike now! its the big yellow one that is hideous and about 50 years old but hey- the wheels move and get me places so i cant complain too much. my first bike had a terrible chain and got destroyed. my second bike got a popped inner tube. ugh.

mike- 2 bikes. but now is bikeless- one bike broken with a popped tire. second bike stolen.

trevor- i think it is safe to say he has gone through about 5 bikes. god only knows what has happened to all of them.

so now we have 1 bike between the four of us. oh how i miss cars.


and the cutie countdown is now at 11 days! I CANT BELIEVE I HAVE LESS THAN 2 WEEKS LEFT HERE!!!! i have waited my whole life to go abroad and now it is quickly coming to an end. how sad.

on a good note- kelly comes today! i have to pick her up from the train station in a few hours and we are going to have a blast!
