Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Delft, Den Haag, Eindhoven, Nejmegen etc etc etc...

Grachten, in the Rennaissance the richest part of Europe, part of Burgundry Empire, Van Gogh (the painter, not the right wing extremist), Rembrandt and all the other Flemish painters

The size of Switzerland with double the pop for it's totally flat with the highest hill about 450m. Randstadt with the green heart, artificial islands and damns, Ameland and other islands in Friesland. The explosion of the firework factory, red light districts, beer and coffeeshops that attract all the German lager louds, Arnhem and Appenheul zoos... etc etc etc.

What do I associate with our dear neighbours...

Amsterdam (grachten), rather boring (flat) countryside, exellent roadnetwork, trains with delays, sometimes arrogant towards Belgium, Paul De Leeuw (love'm!), windmills, great bicycle paths, very ordened villages, small houses, very liberal towards drugs, loud people, friendly people, kroket uit de muur, Heineken (no comment), ...

all in all our second best neighbour. :cheers:

There was a time when I associate the Netherlands with beautiful countryside, tulips, windmills and canals.

But sadly, almost everytime I read about the Netherlands now I read about it's awful racism, violence against ethnic and religious minorities and rabble - rousing far right politicians.

Sad but true.

You must have nothing to do with this post and the one in the Morrocan one. You've never heard of clogs, tulips, windmills, chocalate, milk, chees from Holland? You are such a downer. Lighten up.
