And since was Easter that day, her children bring me Easter Eggs and chocolates for me ^_^ My friends even bring me her own cooking of martabak. Love them and I am so very grateful that we met online.
|Easter presents :)|
Then afterwards, I met my friend who studying and work in somewhere (can't tell) in Netherlands. I was a bit worry how in the heck we are suppose to meet as my friend would be using public transportation. But the previous night me and the group (the younger ones...) visiting Dam Square and the famous Red Light District. Naturally, these two were not on the official itinerary from the travel agent. I saw Madame Tussaud's building during the night trip and decided that would be our meeting point.
Me and the group's tour just got back from Keukenhof and after a few guiding tips from my tour guide, I use the tram and went there. Totally excited trying the public transportation though not so happy when I have to pay for the tram ticket. Kidding. I am still regretting that I can't ride a bicycle .

My friend accompanied me to shop pasta and chocolates for souvenirs back home at the nearest supermarket. Then she took me to the coolest library ever : The Openbare Bibliotheek in Amsterdam. What can I say. We both a bit of bookworms so it was fascinating for us to be around so many books. On the top of the building there is the cafetaria where we both and others can enjoy great view. And have a bit of snacks
|Yeah, the one on the left that's a big klapertaart :)|
So what is the point meeting with strangers? Well, for me...it is nice to have someone that we already know. Walking with us to enjoy the city's view and chit chat a bit more. Besides, when you are in another foreign country that you hardly know the language...it's like having a family to be there for you.
Not that I am going to spend one full month staying at their home if I have the chance. No... Our meeting maybe just for a short time but it was nice for me. Seeing familiar faces that I have already met in the real life. Hopefully, I will be able to do it again in the near future...
Again, I feel the need to remind myself and all of you that meeting someone new is just like meeting new other new people. Will they take advantage of you? Will I be crazy enough to take advantage on them? I never ask to meet people that I don't trust... ;) And they won't agree to see me if they don't trust me.
