I am finally here! Actually I’ve been here two days but the jet lag and the lack of regular internet has temporarily delayed my posting. So first before I tell you stories, I want to include a little list I kept on my phone of the things I learned on my traveling day, when I flew into Brussels, Belgium and then took trains to my school’s location of Eindhoven, Netherlands (Monday/Tuesday):
– First rule of driving in Belgium/Netherlands: there are no rules (hence why I won’t be driving here, ever).
– Belgium is 60/40 in terms of speaking Flemish (Dutch with a different accent) and French.
– This area is the most densely populated area in Europe.
– Belgium had a railway strike the day before we arrived. Thank goodness we came the next day…
For now, that’s all I can contribute because I have a lecture to go to. Tot ziens!
