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 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!
