It rains a lot here. Like, a lot. I had no idea the weather here would be precipitation, partly cloudy, and precipitation — all in the same day. It’s a crazy adjustment from living in places where the sun shines 97-100% of the day. I do love dressing for cold weather, though, and I haven’t yet been disappointed in that department. I’ve been told this is actually one of the coldest winter here in the Netherlands; I cannot express how giddy that made me when I heard it. I will admit, however, that the one thing I hate about the cold is that I have to walk to class in it. BUT, never fear, where I’m staying is so small, that my walk to class is less than 30 seconds. Score! So, cold weather + a short walk = cute clothes and no heavy coat to cover it up. I love it here.
