An update on my travels in Holland. I feel “at home” here, perhaps in the sense of the established nature of the Netherlands. I have spent the past three weeks in an apartment in the suburbs of The Hague. It is about 45 minutes walk to the CBD, and with a tram nearby. I have actually spent much of my time indoors and near my laptop, shopping for groceries, running in the park, or exploring some of The Hague. I ventured out to Rotterdam yesterday.
I am isolated, here. I do not know the language, I have not found a home church, and I know few people. But I can cope with solitude. A different personality would have more trouble. I also value the small interactions.
I will attend an Anglican (Episcopal) church tomorrow, and which will be “homely”.
