When my last of the final papers was finally turned in I went to Holland again to visit my dear friend, Dide. She lives in Utrecht, but also took me to her parent's house in Raalte so I could see the countryside, meet her family, and basically just experience a real Dutch home! We had a blast, ate so much bread, made a Dutch apple pie, cycled to a pub, visited the royal palace, and just had a wonderful time together.
