Amsterdam: Canals

The Study Abroad Department just finished our fall 2012 photo contest and here is one of our winning photos:


This photo was taken at one of the canals in Amsterdam. My friends from Germany and my best friend from the U.S. went with me. My best friend from home and I couldn’t stop singing Call Me Maybe all day. As we were driving back to Germany where we were staying with my friends we heard Call Me Maybe on the radio. It was pretty cool hearing that song on a Netherlands radio station!

Amsterdam: The Dutch Police

I traveled to Amsterdam, Holland during my semester abroad. While there, I saw a group of boys protesting the cruel treatment of animals. In doing so one boy was wearing a mask of a pig that covered his entire face (which I now know is not legal in The Netherlands).  A policeman approached them, as their faces were fully covered. Instead of ticketing, scolding, or punishing these men, the policeman—speaking English beautifully—tried to find out why they were
wearing these masks. Turns out that the police officer agreed with the cause: he wrote the organization a check and took a picture with the protesters before
biking away!
