i'm leaving here because i can't work 50 hrs/week. because i don't have a place to put my clothes. because they pay the bulgarians 600/month combined and still make them scrub the toilets after working hours. oh, and because when i mentioned that my grandmother had had quadruple bypass surgery before i left la, she's all, 'well that's what happens when people don't eat right their whole lives'.
i hate condescending foodies. i seriously have been eating like shit every time i'm in amsterdam just to spite them because i'm so mature. and because dutch pancakes and belgian fries and amazing falafel should be eaten by me.
so i'm spending two nights in the dam, and on wednesday i'm taking the train into brittany (western france) to see a family friend. booking european vacations for the summer works well six months in advance, but when plans change and you need to rearrange shit, it is not happening. i can barely find any trains or hostels. i really want to go to bruges and brussels, but i may not be able to book anything. it's crazy touristy right now. so we'll see. i may be home soon.
amdam is amazing. i'll never be a country mouse because of cities like this. there's so much trashiness contrasted with pretty dutch flowers i can't take it. i'll tell more later, in pictures. maybe, i'm kind of lazy.
