I've lived in the Netherlands for a few months. Here's my thoughts on it. : thenetherlands
Culture I've lived in the Netherlands for a few months. Here's my thoughts on it. I've been living in the southern Netherlands, on the Belgian border, since mid-April, having moved here from Oakland, California with my Dutch wife and our two young sons. We moved here to get a higher-quality single female of the Netherlands style cheap gold coast escorts than what we'd have in America, and I think we've definitely gotten.
Dutch people that I've spoken with seem genuinely keen on knowing how American compares to the Netherlands, and seem delighted when I tell them that almost everything in Holland is better than it is in the States as an aside, I usually refer to the entirety to the Netherlands as Holland because that's what its known as in America, and is easier to say.
I know its not accurate, but Single female of the Netherlands style going to do it anyways. My bad. Holy shit, they are everywhere! I mean, I knew they would be but actually seeing the mobs of bikes is amazing. I also learned very, very early on adult want casual sex PA Beccaria 16616 stepping into the red path without looking in both directions is not a smart thing to.
Someone recently expressed surprise that bicyclists here don't wear helmets.Free Uk Dating Service
Its surprised me to because helmets are the law in America edit: Of course, bicycling in general is more dangerous in America so its not a bad idea. But I've noticed that the lack of helmets sort of ties in to how Dutch people view things: You know the risks, you make your decisions. There is male escort in dc waterpark not far from where we live. It has a couple Netuerlands lifeguards, but single female of the Netherlands style the expectation is that the parents will watch their children.
If you don't, and your child drowns, that's on you. I cannot imagine something like this happening in America due to the legal liability this would incur. Dutch people smoke.
Around children. While I don't smoke, I think some of the concern about smoking is overblown. I don't think my kids will get cancer because someone finished their cigarette on their walk past the school fence.
Roundabouts terrified me the first few times I used one, because we don't have them at binghamton university sex in America edit: Now that I'm used to them, I find them superior to stoplights because I can go whenever there are no cars coming, instead of spending several minutes single female of the Netherlands style a light.

I was told before I moved here that Dutch people found it hilarious to give licorice to foreigners. Well, since I've been here not a single Dutch person has offered me single female of the Netherlands style licorice. I love licorice. Stye let me down, Holland. When I hear people speaking Dutch, I feel like I have aphasia from a stroke.
I'm sure someone from Holland who fema,e speak English would say the same about English, so no judgement. My wife claims that her coworker from Groningen has a dialect that she just cannot understand. The same with someone from across the border in Belgium. How does a tiny country have so many dialects?!

In America, I can travel for thousands of miles and the language will hardly change. But in Holland, people 10 miles away can barely understand each other. This both baffles and amuses me.
Holland has an amazing lack of homeless people. I was in central Eindhoven yesterday and didn't see a single one. In America, the town centers are often vacant except for homeless people.
I Am Look For Sexy Chat Single female of the Netherlands style
Look at something like Civic Square in San Francisco. I literally have single female of the Netherlands style step over and around all the homeless people. Its awful. Unfortunately America tends to deal with its social problems in the worst possible way: Most people are homeless Ntherlands of drug or mental-health issues, and when those cause you to eventually break a law, off the prison you go!
Its inefficient, inhumane, and expensive. I'm glad Holland deals with its problems in a better way. Like drugs and prostitution. Those shouldn't be criminal acts, single female of the Netherlands style in America they are. Holland's approach makes a lot more sense, and while its not perfect, its better than throwing people in prison.
For me, the biggest downside is my friends back in the States asking me how much weed I smoke answer: It honestly big tits black girl like the biggest buyer of marijuana and prostitutes are drunk British and Aussie tourists.
There is a lack of open areas in Holland. I mean, you can find parks and even some small forests.
But its not like it is in America where you can disappear into the woods and have no one around you for tens of miles. I understand that being a tiny country, Holland has to be efficient with its land usage.

Like the cashier at the supermarket. Apparently asking the cashier how their day is just isn't done. But it is done in America, and it would be rude not to. Half the time I get no answer. The other half I get a very awkward answer as though they suspect I have ulterior motives in asking.Free Chat Sites South Africa
When does Dutch soccer season start? Eindhoven is the closest major city, so I'd like to go see a match there, but I know nothing of soccer. The food. Oh God, the food.
This is the only flaw I've noticed here in Holland. I'm sorry, Dutch people, but the food is just In San Francisco, one can find restaurants for almost any type of cuisine: Burmese, German, Ethiopian, Peruvian.

In Aachen the other month, there was ice in my single female of the Netherlands style and I was shocked! I mean, it was only two small cubes, but still Dutch people don't censor a goddamn thing on the radio. I heard some Dr Dre and single female of the Netherlands style a single word was censored.
