Una Rotterdamer -

Yes, it’s true…I just was a tourist in Utrecht but If u change some words in these sentences, u can be talking about my life like a Nederlandse as well =)
*I miss my bike (my bikes actually, the three of them) and the way it didn´t work and I had to kick it to make the wheel turn.
*Of course I used to go to Albert, Plus or even BAS every single day to buy pizzas, beer, halfvole melk or Albert Heijn Sinassapel juice. (Still have my barcode mini card and I use it at least once a year)
*We also had lots of ladybugs on everywhere floor (and it’s something I still don’t understand)
*My house was called “Hotel Cristina” so, I think it’s not necessary to talk about flat partys ;)
*I don’t really know if I drunk 1l of beer each day…but I can say that when I arrived to NL I didn’t like it and 10 months later…
*And…you have been a real Nederlandse when you know Sinerklaas & Zwarte Piet and u use alstublieft for almost everything ;)
PS: I feel almost all these sentences like mine but the one that really sum up my erasmus year is Nº23…for sure!
Fin.
