The Netherlands also beat the US in some 'best place to do business in' awards in The Economist relatively recently with your open culture being one of the main reasons.
I remember one year in France in the Loire ,on a campsite being offered a lift on a quad-cycle thingy by a bunch of Dutch kids who were about 11 ,in fluent English!And this country is about to drop the requirement for all kids from 11-16 to study a foreign language!''EDUCATION,EDUCATIO,EDUCATION'', my ass!

GunFighter6, I was in AMS on business a few years ago and LOVED EVERY MINUTE of it!!!! The city was fantastic, the people genuinely friendly and helpful, the public transportation was more than adequate and the city itself was kept so clean (street washers/scrubbers/vacuums every night downtown). All that AND legal pot & the Red Light District! A great place!

Please tell me that's a joke. Here in Belgium, we do our dishes in that stuff you guys call beer. Same goes for Heineken, btw.  Big grin

Uhm... you're contradicting yourself with that statement. Grolsch is not beer. That stuff gave me the runners for two days last year, and I only had 5!

It's slightly better than Heineken though, but that can hardly be considered a compliment...

You want real beer? Come to the land of the beer, Belgium.

Ahem I'm not really a beer man, more into red wine, but that goes too far now. Germany is the land of beer, none other!! Please keep to the facts of life, maybe Belgium is the beer country of Benelux, but otherwise.....?

Well, in this case it goes together very well *lol*, what a coincidence. (especially since I work for a British bank...what a party that was during the Championships this year, and from the quarter finals onwards nobody dared to say filthy words like 1:5 or Munich 2001 Big grin).

btw: usually I don't support German football, I don't even watch those friendlies anymore, only when I have to deal with Brits and Dutch, then I'm highly patriotic!! And deservedly so Big grin Big grin Big grin

Well my granddad always said: Don't hack around on the losers all the time...sometimes you just have to let the sun shine on them...but only when it's not relevant. ok, hey I don't have a prob with Munich, at least not anymore ( Angry  Angry  Angry ) *cough*, but it didn't exactly help you guys in the long run.


btw: I watched the semi-final Germany-South Korea on the trader floor in London and I did not keep my voice down...all those traders did, though...wonder why...

The Netherlands is fantastic, most people associate only with Amsterdam, but there is so much more beyond. Amsterdam has the nicest people, the most relaxed. On other regions they are nice but more serious, business-oriented.

Only drawback is the terrible local food (i.e. stampot, frikandelen and most snacks, huispot, etc) but Asian food from former colonies hopefully compensate.
