Day 4: The Office, Programmes and Saying Goodbye
Today was my last day at the RVO. Because of the long day I had yesterday, I could arrive a bit later today. At 9:30 I cycled towards the building and about 15-20 minutes later I arrived. There was still a desk left in the same room as Monique (one of the people who had arranged the DVP I joined for two days). I started working on the task I already started on Tuesday on an overview of the LGBTI activists that would possibly visit the Netherlands. For lunch Marius, Sabine and I went for a short walk towards a Turkish stand which sold food. I got some sort of Turkish spinach pancake with grilled vegetables and sauce: delicious! We walked back to the office, where I continued my "work". After I finished this, I started working on a small task for Marjella, who was working on yet another programme: an IP (Influentials Programme) with South-Africa on cycling. We brainstormed a bit on possible companies or organisations they could include in the programme. After saying goodbye to many people I had met this week, including Jos, Monique, Sabine, Marius, Marjella and Bregje, I handed in my visitors card and cycled to my family.
I have had an amazing week here at the RVO in The Hague! I have met people from all over the world, and I have learned a lot about the Netherlands, the port of Rotterdam, agriculture and horticulture, food security, problems other countries are facing, Dutch and foreign cultures, and I could go on. I have definitely reached my goal of experiencing an international working environment and I am very happy that I was able to participate in such a programme! Tomorrow, I will be headed back home, after an amazing couple of days!

Inge, wat een ontzettend leuk, en ook leuk geschreven, verslag. Ik ben blij dat we je een heel mooie tijd hebben kunnen laten beleven en dat je een echte internationale ervaring rijker bent.
Wat mij betreft ben je op de goede weg: nieuwsgierig, flexibel, open minded en je zelf niet op de voorgrond dringend. Veel succes!! Jos
