it's been five days since we arrived in holland and we've spent those days getting settled here in our new home. our temporary apartment is unbelievable, a three story vacation home right on lake macatawa and just a one mile walk from lake michigan. our location has made my jump back into running quite enjoyable. i haven't fully explored downtown holland but i did discover a coffee shop that, while not my style, makes an excellent real cappuccino.
some first impressions: holland is not as small as i originally thought, the lakes are absolutely beautiful, people talk funny, and grocery shopping here is depressing.
i'm looking forward to our first weekend to explore holland together.
