LOWLANDS

I've just come back from a brief return to Belgium & Holland.
I know the area fairly well (lived in the Netherlands for a bit), so always happy to provide info.

Surreyman, this will be the first year in a while that I've not visited Holland. Wow, got to go to Ghent in Belgium once--fantastic! Don't want to be a downer, but my dad has a real bad brain tumor (redundant, no?) . They've given him perhaps a year to live. He's doing well considering. Anyway, will be making frequent trips to central Florida, so if anyone would like any info on fast-food, fat people or alligators, I'm the one to ask.

Good grief, even I don't get there every year - and you can almost see the place from here!

Well, I go to visit my friends as much as anything. Plus it's a good starting point for other trips. I should apologize for what I said about Florida. There are many interesting and beautiful parts. Unfortunately my folks live far inland, just south of Orlando.

Sandracam - where are your friends in the Netherlands?
Mine tend to centre around De Lier, Naaldwijk, etc., where I was staying a week or so back.
I lived in Den Haag for a bit in the 1960s. My flat then overlooked open polder - now it's a sea of buildings!

My friends are in Amsterdam, in the Niewmarkt and Jordaan areas. I would move there in a minute if I had any talent for languages. Of course the Dutch speak excellent English, but I'm a nurse, and I feel that it's best for people to be cared for in their own language.

Have never been to The Hague. You know even though Holland is so crowded my friends have taken me to some fairly bucolic locales not far from Amsterdam.

Yep, I know Amsterdam also.
We, too, nearly moved to the Netherlands in our early years of marriage.
Must be something in the water!
It's a very sensible country.

I heard recently, the Dutch are contemplating
re-criminalizing Drugs and Prostitution....
That doesn't sound sensible to me....Just a
step toward raising their crime rate
