Day Two-School's In

Oh yeah, we are here for class...Today was back to reality as we started the day with presentations about the countries and schools we were visiting.  True to form, Co-hort VIII started right in with questions and discussion.  Never mind the fact that the world-class city of Amsterdam was right outside our door!

 So one hour behind schedule, Chris and I headed to the Rijksmuseum to take in the Dutch masters.  Seeing works from Van Gogh, Vermeer, and Rembrandt all under one roof seemed like the most efficient way to experience the art of the Netherlands.  After that, we headed for a canal tour.  We bought some Gouda, sausages, Proseco for me, and a beer for Chris and felt most privileged as we cruised along.
 One of the most interesting things about the cruise was spotting a gentleman in a "Southern Proper" baseball cap.  "Southern Proper" is an apparel company founded by a Brenau alum and Board of Trustees member, Emy Howard.  I surreptitiously snapped a photo of the gentleman and cannot wait to show it to Emy.

After our canal tour, we walked and walked and walked some more.  We decided to turn in early for the 8:00am start on Tuesday.
