Hello from Holland

Greetings sharers.

This is my first post here and I would like to ask a question.

A lot of times when Holland is the subject in movies etc they only mention Amsterdam, weed and prostitutes and how ''awesome'' it is.

This got me thinking about what people outside Holland actually know about Holland besides the typical sterotypes.

    The colour orange. Lots and lots of orange.

    Then again I apparently have really bad teeth and call everyone I come across 'a jolly good fellow' but I assure you my teeth are fine and I only ever used that term once in my English Literature GCSE exam.

    Lots of wind mills. But there is also a town in Michigan named Holland. It was started by Dutch settlers. But I read an article about a town in the Netherlands that is powered completely by wind energy, I think that is awesome!

    alot of things are cheaper than in germany for example
    you have outlet stores
    the weirdest language on earth (it sound like german,englisch and french mixed up)
    the best cheese comes from the netherlands
    there are a lot of damn hot girls but they better shut up because when they speak its aweful XD
    and you watch most of the movies in english which is pretty awesome

    and driving bicycle is like a must
    you all love fish XD
    the country itself wasnt made by god or more like wasnt made by nature it was made by humans
    kinda

    and all I remember is a joke
    what does someone from the netherlands get when he didnt pass the drivers license test?
    a yellow license plate XD

    I've been to Amsterdam once before. All I really know about Holland is their general history of WW2, the windmills/wind farms. Sorry.

    But how much do you know about the UK?
