Stuff Dutch People Like: Authenticity

One of Rembrandt’s (many) well lit, crazy faced self-portraits was finally authenticated. It was painted in Leiden, my home for next year. It’s currently living in the Rembrandt Huis in Amsterdam (which I loved and highly recommend) until June 29th. I’m not sure where it’s moving after that. It was purchased in England, so I think it’ll go back there.

It’s a really lovely painting. I’d like to see it, but I’m afraid I’ll be coming inĀ  a month too late. But I can’t wait to meet Leiden and whatever my lofe there looks like. I can’t wait to ride a bike to Albert Heijn, do a little shopping, go home, and cook for myself while listening to American podcasts.

I’ve been out of school for about a month now, and I’ve been missing this learning thing. Comparing Leiden to Amsterdam seems like a fruitless endevor. They’re too different. It’s fine, though; I don’t want a happy rerun. I’m looking for something new.

It’s not right…

…but it’s OK.
Heineken hot tubs might be useful if you like your beer boiled to perfection. Different strokes. But it does make a fun first impression.
