Arrived in Beautiful Leiden

On Monday after the introductory class, the group had a tour with Jay, a Leiden resident.  He showed us both historical sites like a citadel from the twelfth century and cool places to eat and hang out.  We crossed numerous bridges– they’re ever-present in this canal-webbed city– and of course we   had to take photos on some of them.

The dorm rooms are a hit.  They’re spacious and spare in a European modern way and have huge windows with wonderful views.
