So we finally got our bikes working last week. At first, I thought my bike was way too tall for me (it is clearly a man's bike and is very big), but I'm used to it now and it's a good bike. Riding around Leiden can be extremely intimidating, but so far, there have been no big mishaps and I really enjoy it. I usually go at a very slow pace especially when compared to the Dutch who ride bikes from the time that they learn how to walk.
Irina and I took a quick trip to Brussels this weekend. Brussels is only a 2 hour train ride from Leiden. It is very quaint. It has some great buildings and overall, I really liked the city. The food is REALLY good in Brussels. I tried two types of Belgian waffles - the street waffle was better
I had one class 2 times last week. The class is pretty confusing - it's supposed to be an Intro to EU law, but I'm pretty lost already. I was also supposed to have another class - Ancient Egyptian Law, but the Professor didn't show up! So that was that. We were actually social last week and went to the International Dinner and bar night and we have a picture to prove it ;)
