The Netherlands ... :)

Well we're here ... in case you didn't get the earlier memo's ... :)

We got in around 10AM CET on Saturday ... about 1AM Pacific ... tired, sleepy and maybe a wee bit cranky.  After going through customs, which was easier then a breeze ... they didn't ask anything, just looked at us, stamped our passports and sent us along, we gathered up our luggage and went to the meeting place for our taxi.

After a little bit of confusion at the hotel, we got to our room and were able to relax. I was passed out shortly afterwards and slept very well, we thankfully have a very comfy bed! :)  After finding our way to the grocery store to buy some essentials, I cooked my first meal in about 3 weeks thanks to the generous kindness of friends! :)

We were both awake quite early Sunday morning, so we made our way to the English speaking Anglican Church we had found and enjoyed a worship service with them.  I'm sure we'll be going back their again in the coming weeks.

I haven't really done much since we've been here, the jet lag is really kicking me this time.  So I've been sticking close to the hotel and relaxing.  Today I am in the office with Aaron, dealing with last minute Immigration things, as tomorrow morning we have our interview, that will decide if we can stay or not.  Please pray for us at 9AM CET (1AM PST, 4AM EST tonight) that they will be favourable to us and let us stay!

Also tomorrow afternoon, I'll be going with the housing company rep to see a few apartments and see if we can find someplace to live here!

Aaron will be leaving tomorrow night to go to Austria for the day Friday, and will be back Friday night sometime.  I won't be going with him since it is only a day trip.

No pictures yet, I've only taken some from the airplane so far.

Till next time,
ME! :)
