Hot hot hot

It is our third day in Rotterdam and students are getting used to the city. We had a camera race yesterday, but, surprisingly, it took the winning team over 3 hours to finish all 10 spots. Compared to 2010, the winning team made it back in 90 minutes. I think it has quite a bit to do with getting used to the city style: walking, walking, walking. It seems that the students only now realize that you can walk 3, 4, 5 or more miles a day and... you get tired.

This morning we had hot lunch at the hostel and class in the Rotterdam library. We were talking about Global Marketing and this whole trip is all about just that. So, tonight, students have to find a product in here at the local store and explain how it is different (or similar) to the same one in the US using the 4 P's. I am looking forward to their blogs, so they should start popping up shortly.

As a sidenote - it is extremely hot today and we have easily topped 80F, if not 90F.
