A fabulous Erasmus in Amsterdam

According to photography student Evelyn, the Netherlands is a great place for an Erasmus.


Student: Evelyn Janssens (21)
Study: Photography at Luca-arts campus Brussels
Erasmus: Amsterdam, Netherlands

"Holland is super cool for Erasmussers, because everyone is very social there. The University of Amsterdam recommended that I join an art club for students, Particolarte. In October, Particolarte organized a weekend and I saw that as a great opportunity to get to know some people right away. We stayed for three days at a cosy, but slightly isolated farmhouse in Twente. For example, to take a shower we had to pay 50 cents every three minutes, so only two people washed themselves. Despite that shower problem, we did have a great time. Everyone organized a workshop like body painting, writing monologues, making stamps out of potatoes... During one of those workshops, I found out that a boy from the association had a pet duck. I thought that was so goofy that I asked to see the animal. After the weekend, I went home with him, and yes, I met Seychuan the duck."
