I've been to  The netherlands many times. I have friends over the border in Belgium and the best way to get to them is to fly to Amsterdam and take a train to Weert, then they drive the 20 mins to pick me up. Ilove Amsterdam very easy to get around O0

Apart from the obvious that Amsterdam has to offer, one of the
nicest places to walk around and shop is an area called De Negen
Straatjes ( The Nine Streets ). It`s all 2nd hand shops , botiques
and gezellig ( cosy,nice ) cafes.

Hi, Im living in Holland at the moment, near Rotterdam, but quite a long way  from any activity. 
Having been born in Belfast and brought up in South Africa this is all quite new and strange to me.
Hope I'll get used to it soon.
Regards   Cara

Hi Bilni
I had a great friend who is living in Holland  He is a jazz pianist named Dave Horne  he has played with some fine musicians over there including the Dutch Swing Orchestra and Candy Dolpher

I believe he lived in
Johan Frisolaan 41
(Noord Brabant,The Netherlands   Does that address make sense

Noord Brabant is a Province,but your friend must be quite
good if he`s played with Candy Dulfer, she herself is a fine
sax player having played with Prince and Belfasts own
sour face Van Morrisson. She made a series on Dutch tv
a few months ago where she interviewed famous musicians
and Van the man not exactly known for giving interviews
allowed Candy to interview him.
