Wanting to suck in netherlands
Horror stories spread faster and easier, so I thought about adding a good experience to the mix. I am not saying it was easy. But still, it was beautiful, and more importantly: at every moment, I felt that my baby and I were in good hands. I chose to be checked by a midwife throughout my pregnancy a friend of mine chose a gynecologist during hers, so you can get that option as well. Also, two ultrasounds are just enough if your pregnancy is going OK.
7 things that the Dutch kind of suck at
Why Holland Sucks, part I
I would like people to understand that Holland voting against the treaty should not matter. The french doing so is regrettable, but there is an explanation. Paris, Neuilly, wealthy people, educated people, productive regions and French living abroad voted yes, and with a huge majority. The peasants, the restless, the communists, the neonazis, the dirty militant farmers, and people within the socialist party all voted for no. As always, peasants should not vote. After all, in the US, poor neighborhoods always have voting problems and huge lists of people excluded for different reasons. They should have done the same in France.
Read this first especially if you are Dutch : Everything I say in this post is my personal opinion. Laugh about it. Or simply click away. But there is so much of that already. It is much more fun to talk about what makes Holland strange, peculiar, weird.
So unfair! Anyway, I digress. Just yesterday there was a knock on the door while I was working and I was expecting it to either be the Dutchie forgetting his keys or my ASOS delivery… but nope, it was my next door neighbour — who launched into a detailed account of our pipes and the inner workings of the plumbing on our road.
