    "One of my favorite memories from my program is the day I discovered Dutch pancakes. Yes, there is a lot of hype about them and for other stereotypical things that sometimes doesn’t correlate with how good food actually is, but I promise that on this day at this place the Dutch pancakes were sublime. A few of my friends, who were also international students, and I biked from the VU after school through this beautiful forest (Amsterdamse Bos) with trails. It was a beautiful sunny fall afternoon (which are unfortunately rare in the Netherlands). Eventually, we arrived at a farm which doubled as a pancake restaurant, so we could see goats and peacocks (!) as we ate. There were so many sweet and savory pancake options that it was hard to choose. I ended up splitting a veggie and cheese and fried onion pancake and a banana chocolate pancake with a friend. They were delicious, as was the hot cocoa. And this restaurant was so cute! The pancakes were made by pouring batter into shallow wells, then putting the toppings on top, and this giant pancake cooking thing would rotate like a lazy susan so that once a pancake had completed a round it was cooked! After stuffing our faces, my friends and I biked back and saw lots of cows and reveled in the glory that is good food and friendship and biking. In case you ever find yourself in Amsterdam (please do!) I hope you will stop by the Boerderij Meerzicht."
