Hello from the Netherlands!

We're in the Netherlands ("Nederland") at Stacy's house in Nijmegen ("Nÿmegen"). Yesterday we spent the entire day and evening in Amsterdam, today we spent most of the day in downtown Nijmegen, and then the night in Germany! Tomorrow we will be spending the day in castles, and the next morning we leave for Prague! I'm not going to talk about everything we did or all the hilarious words, strange quotes, and very very narrow staircases, because it would take days--- but I just wanted to let everyone know I'm safe and happy and not Dutch yet. I'm writing a fairly descriptive journal that I plan to scan in, and make a ridiculously long post when I get home. I have lots of pictures, too!

The trip, since I realized I hadn't posted it:

The Netherlands (3 days)
Prague (3 days)
Salzburg (2 days)
Venice (1 day)
Florence (1 day)
Cinque Terra (2 days)
Rome (3 days)
Paris (1 day)

(plus travel time of course)

Love all of you!

We still have one more day, so we are not done yet here in Nederland. I wish we had more time in Florence and Venice. I will definitely look for the strawberry cream liqueur, I wish I could bring some back for you! Why aren't you on AIM/gmail?

Oh I'm jealous. Florence is amazing, Paris is amazing, you'll be wishing you had more time! Christmas in Europe!

I have to tell you. I had the best/cheapest meal in Florence called Darvish Cafe (I have told ten zillion people about this place by now, these people should be paying me) its on Via Ghibellina. It's off the beaten path so very quiet, and very cozy.

I know we'll wish we had more time, unfortunately we could only fit so much into this trip! On Christmas we'll be doing the Sound of Music tour. We're Jewish, so it's not really a big deal :-P

I'll try to find the cafe but we have VERY little time in Florence. Like, midmorning to evening. We do have to eat though! I will ask if its nearby, it sounds great!

"We're Jewish, so it's not really a big deal"

If you can get your hands on any cool European bottlecaps, I'll take as many as you can find. I'll even send you some shipping material.

Haven't seen any yet, but I'll look out. I'm not in any place long enough to get anything shipped to me, though.

I meant to your house, silly.

i'm part czech, so i've ALWAYS wanted to go to prague. my brother's ex went there a couple times with her sisters...super jealous.

it's also my dream to go to venice. i think that if i was only allowed one place in europe to visit one time in my entire life, it would be venice.

i hope you have a lovely rest of your trip! <3

I hear they are definitely both beautiful, but Venice is mostly underwater right now-- I don't know how much we will be able to see.

Here's hoping you get to visit Europe lots of times :)
