A Short Primer on the Dutch

November 17, 2008

A great site for news and info about life in the Netherlands that I stumbled upon a couple of months ago (expatica.com) has yielded yet another great article.  Check out this article for a quick look in to living and working in the Netherlands.  

And now on to something completely pointless, and yet hilariously funny, I hope you enjoy this video as much as I have (Please do not assume that I this video–which I cannibalized from a friend’s facebook–has any value whatsoever outside of the comedic realm).

    A thought in response to this article you recommended. Nathan said to Casper something about the Dutch not liking it if you are too polite, cause maybe you have a hidden agenda (paraphrase by me). Casper thought that was one of the most ridiculous things he has ever heard about Dutch people. But I enjoyed reading the article anyway!

  2. “Calvinism still strongly influences their values and beliefs” cause it’s the best.

    And you know it!

    To Anna–and I’m sure Casper was very direct about just how ridiculous it was that the Dutch could be annoyed at indirectness…
