The Amsterdam Subway System
Still can't believe what just happened to me, I just need to share this.. I live in Amsterdam and I need to take the subway to work in the morning. Over here it's freezing outside, when it's supposed to be spring already. Don't get me wrong, the sun does shine, but the temperature is below zero, especially when the wind blows. Anyway, I'm 6 months pregnant now, what sometimes makes me feel like I could faint, because I experience some kind of dizzyness. In the subway it's even a bit worse, because the heating is on it's highest level possible, the temperature-switch confuses my body. Then there's the fact that this particular subway I take is always packed with students and working people, so I usually need to stand. Untill now nobody stood up for me to sit down and I guess I'm to shy and/or proud to ask if I may sit.. And then the moment I never expected would happen, happened. A woman stood up for me, saying: "I'm 8 months pregnant, but I feel fine and I can see you struggling, so I think you need this seat more than I do." I can blame it on the estrogen, but that really made me emotional for a moment there. She made my day and it only just started.
