We end our stay with dinner in Utrecht. It an interesting atmosphere to be in the middle of a teeny room with tiny tables, that soon fills up with 30 people. All are conversing in Dutch, it gets louder and louder and we are in the middle of the Sat nite buzz and we cannot understand a single word around us. No eavesdropping!!!
What I know about Holland that I didn't before....
The Dutch eat mustard with everything! They dip cheese int it, they dip bread in it, they dip all their appetizers in it!
There is more water and canals than I ever could have imagined. The cities and towns are like Venice, and boats are just as much a part of the transportation as bicycles!
The Netherlands are a people to take of their own decisions and their own well being and safety. It is refreshing to be in a place where they do not expect the government to take care of everything.
The population is astounding!
There is more to Dutch beer than Heineken. Spring Beers are excellent!
Sheep! bezillions of sheep!
