You may be forgetting a very important factor. I am also in SCHOOL! I feel like this semester is going by so fast because we spend so much time planning travel, but when we get back we dive into studying and preparing for tests. Here is our Dutch Art History class. The next picture is the outside of our school building.
One of my favorite things so far has been going to Amsterdam for the USA vs. Netherlands soccer game. This is soccer on a mass-audience scale! Something we do not get in the US. Our group of Baylor students dressed in red, white, and blue was a small majority in the stadium of bright orange, the color of the Netherlands soccer team. The US team played pitifully until the last 10 minutes. It was 2-0 (the Dutch team winning) and we finally scored a goal. THEN, we almost scored again, but the time ran out. At least we scored once. It was so much fun. Cold, but fun.
