in the netherlands

I've been here for almost a week now. I'm getting used to being away from home. I've met lots of great people, many of which will be on the Doulos with me (there are TONS of Doulos people).

The Netherlands is green, wet, and cool. It's a nice change from hot, dry Texas. But soon I will be somewhere that is probably still green and wet, but not cool at all...

Yesterday was the most intense day of training. It was a simulation of trying to enter a restricted country. The country was made up, but it was modeled after real life. Even though I knew it was fake, it was kind of like the Matrix. "Your mind makes it real." It was terrifying, really. I have no plans to go to a restricted country, so I was not at all prepared for the interrogations and such that we faced. But it was good to have gone through that experience.

OK. Almost out of internet time. So I'll leave you with one more closing thought, which some of you may not get....

After my shower the other day, I wanted to see how much time I had left before I had to be somewhere and I asked myself "What time is it?" Immediately, the next thought in my head was "Are you cookin beans?"
