This is Trinke, Danielle, Rebecca, Ruthie, and me on the island of Schiermonnikoog.
We all had so much fun over there. We did some unexpected things like, watched a football (soccer) game and biked around an island for an entire day. Steve and Julie took great care of us and made sure we never got worn out. We also did a not-so-fun thing. The Dutch love to eat raw red herring. They literally take the fish, chop off its head, scrape the scales off, and top it with chopped onions. Steve insisted that the whole team try it and just count it as a cultural experience. So we did. I can say without a doubt that it was the most horrible thing I have ever eaten! The taste wasn't too bad, but the texture almost made me throw up. It was slimy and watery, and disgusting! But I guess now I can say that I've had Dutch red herring...not many others can say that!
The streets of Groningen at night. Isn't it gorgeous?!
