Okay, so a lot of people have been wondering what I have been up to ever since I got to the Netherlands.

Did you go to the “coffee shops”?

Are the women hot?

How is the beer?

Did you go to the “coffee shops”?

Did you fall into a canal?

Did you go to the “coffee shops”?

The questions are numerous.

Anyway, it looks like I have to post something about this place, but before that, I must must must show you my new (second hand) bike, because having bought it means that I am actually smart, and justifies any of the stupid things I (might) do in the future.

Now that we have all drooled over my baby, lets find out some of the stuff I learnt ever since I got here.

1. People just DO NOT get my name. I now have a wide variety of names including Sri, Siridevi, Sleedevi, Devi (pronounced like Debbie).

[And a lot more people who just smile cos they cannot remember it]

2. The Dutch, the Portuguese, the Italians (I am yet to discover which other countries as well) all kiss (a different number of times) when they greet you.

3. The Dutch are the tallest people in the world.

[I point blank refuse to comment on point 3]

4. Beer is cheaper than water.

[But that would also be because you can drink water directly from the taps, so buying a bottle of water is kind of pointless]

I think that should be enough trivia for now. So until someone does something stupid (including me falling into a canal), see you!

Dear imaginary followers of my blog,

Thank you for taking time out from your busy schedule to read my blog everyday. I regret to inform you that I will be unable to post for a week as I am going away on vacation. But I promise I will get back to the usual 5 posts a week deal, once I am back.

So long!
