January in Nijmegen

As you may have guessed, we are back in Nijmegen now, though technically we arrived late Saturday evening. We enjoyed a nice final day in Nijmegen with Farrell's Dad on Sunday, as we slept in, went on a lazy walk, met up with Frank's train buddy that befriended him on the train ride from Amsterdam to Nijmegen, and then went to an early dinner at De Hemmel, the delicious, but expensive restaurant we have written about before. On Monday, we had a final walk around the town and the market, followed by a final frites speciaal, and then we walked to the train station, where we said our goodbyes, and saw the train off.

Since, then we have been studying for exams and attempting to recuperate from our colds. Of course, we did take a short break to celebrate my birthday. Farrell bought me a pretty bouquet of daisies, which are sitting pretty in the common area for all to enjoy, as well as a special tin of Lady Grey tea (my favorite). The tea is an especially apt gift, as it is a tin of loose-leaf tea, so I can use it in my teapot that Frank gave me for Christmas. Plus, when I have used all the tea, I will have a nice little tin to put little mementos and such things in. Oh, and as a substitute for a cake he bought us each an apple pie/tart/scone or some sort of pastry from the bakery, which was absolutely delicious.

So, with one exam down, and several more to follow, it was not too bad of a week. Hopefully Farrell will get some pictures up soon, though do bear with us, as there are tons of pictures that must be sorted and only a little time in which to do it.

Until Next Time,
