  • Why am I so emotionally attatched to Amsterdam?

    Best answer: It is because you were not there long enough to see it in the real light of daily life. Amsterdam is a nice city but it is not as good as you think it is. It is a bit like getting a crush on a TV star or a famous singer, you dream but you do not need to act about it. If you were to move to Amsterdam you would soon... show more
    Best answer: It is because you were not there long enough to see it in the real light of daily life.
    Amsterdam is a nice city but it is not as good as you think it is.

    It is a bit like getting a crush on a TV star or a famous singer, you dream but you do not need to act about it.
    If you were to move to Amsterdam you would soon learn the truth and lose that fallen in love feeling. But that is not realistic for you right now, first of all, too expensive, too far and you would not be able to get the paperwork sorted.

    So dream on as long as the dream last but realize that you will not be able to act on it.

    If in a (few) year(s) you are still dreaming about Amsterdam, you can try to go there for a longer trip. Or even an exchange or year of studying. But do not yet plan on living in Amsterdam, it gets boring as fast as any other city.

  • What can I do to celebrate my Dutch (the Netherlands) ancestry?

    Best answer: First of all, the Dutch would be surprised to find you celebrate your Dutch ancestry, as we tend to be rather much of the opinion you are of the nationality you grew up in, so if you lived in the USA your whole live, you are US American, if you grew up in Canada, you are Canadian. But if you want to know more... show more
    Best answer: First of all, the Dutch would be surprised to find you celebrate your Dutch ancestry, as we tend to be rather much of the opinion you are of the nationality you grew up in, so if you lived in the USA your whole live, you are US American, if you grew up in Canada, you are Canadian.

    But if you want to know more about your ancestry, look up where they came from, find pictures (photos or paintings) of the people of that area in the time they still lived there.
    There are regional differences, and if they lived in one of the small pockets with a lot of local traditions you want to know about that pocket.

    If they lived in the South of the Netherlands, south of the rivers, (Rhine, Waal, Maas,) they likely celebrated Carnaval, if so, that is a very nice tradition to look up and maybe to copy.
    North of those rivers Kermis was likely the bigger festival, with a few days of drinking and having fun, local competitions and now mostly a bike race and a horse trotting race.

    While poffertjes are a nice food, most of the Dutch do not eat them often nor are they a celebration food, most a child pleaser when out in town. Oliebollen are much more traditional, they are eaten for New Year Eve, and at Kermis, either the plain ones, ones with raisins in it, or cut open and filled with a range of niceties.
    Different parts of the Netherlands have different local traditional foods, several kinds of waffles are used in Groningen around the New Year.

    One thing celebrated in almost all of the country is Sinterklaas, (St Nicolas) and it comes with loads of traditions, stories, foods, gifts and excuses to make fun of your loved ones in a nice way. It also comes with the tradition of Zwarte Piet, which never was a problem till the 'anti discrimination lobby' of the USA heard of it. So not sure if you want to take all of its traditions.

  • Why are all the girls in Amsterdam's red-light district from Eastern Europe?

    Best answer: Many of the sex workers have come from Eastern Europe to Amsterdam and other big cities simply because it's the only way they can make money. However, the dark side is that many of the girls have been trafficked and are virtually slaves in the sex industry.
