Op pad in Nederland: Deventer City reporter / Toerist in eigen land

Deventer is één van de steden in Nederland waar ik graag nog eens een keertje heen wilde om te gaan ontdekken. Vorige week maandag was mijn ALLER ALLER ÁLLER laatste dag dat ik gratis met mijn geliefde gratis OV mocht rondreizen door Nederland. Ik ging op pad in Nederland en Deventer leek mij een perfecte bestemming! Een historische en bourgondische stad Om heel eerlijk te zijn wist ik nog niet veel van deze stad.

Amsterdam is really one of those cities that people from ‘outside’ tend to have a strong image of. When I was living in The United States as an exchange student (2007-2008), all the highschoolers thought I was so cool because I smoked weed all day in Amsterdam, and all the prositutes would just come up to me to offer work, and especially don’t forget that I must be lesbian too and wear wooden shoes all day with a bouquet of tullips in one hand while holding a can of beer in the other.
