Still, Amstelveen was and continues to be an ideal location for doing business, doing anything, even growing old. It allows one to walk or ride among very cultivated relaxing landscapes, attending events which take one's darkest thoughts away and draw on whatever inner resources one commands.
The Dutch are a nation of tradesmen before anything else, middlemen, deal-brokers. Thus: trade and consulting were to be the two main activities. Trade in porcelain (it is hardly perishable product when top-class) and consulting (in tourism as probably the only industry with a chance of immediate or very quick return hard currency) whether the Dutch or the Macedonians. So, travel to places like Worcester and Stoke-on-Trent, Barlastone, Stone became a must. When that was wrapped, came Luxembourg with Villeroy & Boch.
Thus purchase in Europe from the top producers and sell in Macedonia to the top customers. It had begun as a song and ended as a bloody drama.
Travel to Luxembourg from Amsterdam is about five hours ride via Maastricht and Liege, roughly the same as to Stoke-on-Trent.
