The City of Bridges and Canals

30 Apr 2015

A bit more of my last bout of travelling, this stop, Amsterdam. While in Amsterdam I got to travel to Keukenoff to see the tulip fields/gardens, and spent a lot of time walking around the city with my friend Tara as a tour guide, who is studying there for the semester. The city was beautiful and we had great weather for the whole trip. I got to try some native dutch cuisine, dutch pancakes, which were incredible. All in all it was one of my favorite trips, and I am so thankful to Tara for showing me around, and for the opportunity to see Holland and Amsterdam, the native country of my great grandfather.

by Abigail

The goodbyes I have to make to this city are endless. I have to bid farewell to the corner cafes with their identical menus of Sangria, croquettas, patatas bravas and paella.

Home Again

by Naomi Runder

As of now I am back in the United States far away from where I used to be in Cape Town. I'm visiting some friends in Grinnell and settling back into life here. My last weeks in Cape Town were fun but a bit of a blur, going by far faster than I could have anticipated.
