Earlier in the week I received a message from my Dutch friend Katja. She’s currently in Washington, DC attending a seminar for work. She wanted to thank me again for the info about DC that I’d shared with her before she left. The weather was nice and she was enjoying her visit. ‘I love DC and can […]

Now you’re probably thinking, ‘oh please, don’t let this be some idiot boring me to death with their stupid foreign language skills.’ I won’t speak to the idiot part, but I can tell you that I am not flaunting my language skills. For the record, my Dutch […]
