this morning i had an appointment at this super stylish little place, called soop, which is in the market across the street from our flat. i chatted with a darling girl, 21 and already "over drinking", so funny! she put the color on and then another woman, who spoke almost no english, did the cut and style. luckily i brought a couple of pictures, but talk about being trusting!
i was just happy to be there, though, sipping on my two cappuccinos and eating my little cookies and "reading" my dutch home decor magazine. i'm pretty sure all the ladies got a kick out of "an american" getting her hair done there...lots of smiles and giggles. it didn't matter that i couldn't understand a word they said, the mood was very light and fun. i felt very european. ;-)
