Postcards from Amsterdam


It has been too long since my last blog post. These past few weeks have been crazy/busy/exciting.

Matt arrived in the U.S. August 1, and we went on a whirlwind tour between Milwaukee, Chicago, Pelican Rapids MN, and Minneapolis. We loved every minute of visiting with our family and friends and appreciate those who made the time to see us during our short visit.

Before settling back into our reality in India, we were able to visit Amsterdam for a few days during our layover.  I wasn't really sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by what a beautiful city it was.

We spent most of our time walking around the canals, eating cheese and stroopwafels, trying new Dutch beers, and gawking at the Red Light district. Surprisingly, with all the cannabis and promiscuity, it is a very relaxed, safe and friendly city.

Here are some of my favorite snapshots...
Cheese tasting at Reypenaer 





Heineken Tour


Bitterballen - tastes like Thanksgiving in a fried ball!



Brouwerij't IJ Brewery


De Gooyer Windmill


Apple Pannekoeken 






We arrived in India around 1:30am last night and are staying in Delhi until Saturday morning while Matt works at the office here. I am really looking forward to getting back into our apartment so I can unpack my suitcase for the first time in months. I am anticipating several things to be not working in our apartment, so at least I am mentally prepared for that.

This blog will return to its regularly scheduled expat-shenanigans soon!
