Eigenlijk een beetje nutteloos topic, wordt alleen maar op gereageerd door Nederlanders ;)
Dat is ook meteen een groot minpunt aan dit forum, zolang er in Nederland geen steden als NY of HK zijn interesseert het een buitenlander geen reet. Hoe mooi de steden hier ook verder zijn
Total bullshit. 2 out of 3 of the previous reactions were from non Dutch.
And even if it were true that only Dutch respond to this topic...so what?
The pics are still amazing. Keep m coming guys!

I think most visitors here are Dutch indeed but as already said: maybe for them a thread like this is even more interesting. At least I really like to search the web for pics of the country I was born and raised.
