weekend in the netherlands

had a great weekend in the netherlands with martijn and sytske. we spent an afternoon in amsterdam and then drove to their hometown where we spent the rest of the weekend. it was special to spend time with them after not seeing them for two years. we talked a lot about our time together in south africa and they introduced me to several lekker dutch snacks. after a two hour train ride, eight hour flight, and three hour drive today i am home in champaign.

pofferties. basically small pancakes that they put butter, powdered sugar, and syrup on. this qualifies as one of those lekker dutch snacks.

martijn and sytske surprised me and made arrangements for hendrik and dieuwke to join us for an evening (other dutch volunteers at YfC in south africa). felt like old times.
