A Hoosier in Holland


Beginning on April 8th, 2001, this smalltown Hoosier boy moved to The Netherlands for a work assignment in Rotterdam. This web site is meant to track my (mis?)adventures while in Europe. Below, you can take a look at my first home in Rotterdam: the exotic Holiday Inn near Centraal Station. Small wonder that I couldn't wait to find my own place (especially when you add the fact that I'd spent most of the last 6 months living in a hotel in New Jersey). You will be happy to know that I have found an apartment and am currently living in Utrecht, which is in the center of Holland.
