With over 16 million people on an area roughly twice the size of New Jersey, it’s a densely populated country with its gorgeous capital Amsterdam being just one of many interesting cities.
The Dutch have a reputation for being blunt and direct to the point of rudeness. Very much like many of the Norwegians I should ad. Except they have the touch of the French cheek kissing culture which I as a Norwegian have never understood. It is mainly because they are not – as their Norsemen lookalike – saying please at every sentence. I at my shorts stay there thought they were more alike Norwegians than any other country in Europe.
Unfortunately I did not visit the red-light district when I was there. But I have to say that I loved the food, culture and every conversation. I felt very much as home.
Nederland is the Dutch name for the Netherlands or Holland.
Unfortunatly I cannot find this artists name! But wow what a photo!
