Yeah, I don't think many Dutch students know much about say, Massachusetts or Connecticut.

Well the Northeast and Much of Europe are are alike , if you take size and Transit into consideration. Connecticut isn't a weird name its unique , its a state of Poor People in the Urban Areas and Super Rich People everywhere else , I say the The Netherlands , if i'm typing really fast i say Holland. In the Northeast we are very influenced by The Europeans , alot live here , My 5,6th Grade Teacher was British , i had a German 8th Grade Teacher , and a 11th Grade World History Teacher. Outside the Northeast its different on Everything , form Education to Transit , its less ands less the farther you go West , till its average. Here most people are smart or very intelligent. Walking down the Streets here i would run into Spaniards and British People , as well as lots of Asians. New Jersey has had the Highest Graduation Rate since 2000 , are Education System is one of the best in the Country. As well as our Transit and Clean Energy. Colorado is alot different , The people there aren't as diverse or Educated by massive Global Diversity.

Went to the Denver Nuggets game today. Good game against Chicago Bulls and nice experience for someone out of Holland.

In Czech language is Netherlands translated as Nizozemi or Nizozemsko which means in czech low land, in Slovak language it's Holandsko which has no meaning in our language, it's interesting because our languages (CZ/SK) are very similar and we share many words and understand each other.

Many people (in our numbers, probably the biggest part of immigrants after vietnamese/chinese) from Netherland are immigrating to Slovakia from what I heard they are buying houses in villages, which I suppose has something to do with lower living costs here and also can have with global warming.

I doubt many people are actually afraid of global warming, and thus leave the country for that very reason.

However, if the Randstad floods (below sealevel), New Orleans will look like an insignificant problem compared to that. Over 7 million people live below sea level.

The hungarian language doesn´t translate the name-----Hollandia.
The danish neither------Hollandthen again------Nederlandene, but you never use this in everydays language.

Well...thanks!

I was away this weekend, driving the A4 around Eisenach for the last time - because it will be replaced in a month.
