America Things to Do

    As everybody knows you have to be in The Netherlands to see windmills. In America there are no such things (-:
    In Meterik, a village not far from America, is a perfect example of a windmill called "Eendracht maakt macht" (United we stand strong") ... yet another comparison with the America that we all know best, actually called the United States.

    America is a typical Dutch ... no Limburgian village on the agricultural countryside of this province. It is quite and cosy and surrounded with fields, acres and large farms. There are also some small forests, remainders of the huge forest that once was covering the whole "Peel-area". There are also some campingsites and bungalow-parks in the neighborhood. For those who want to get out of the stress and business of towns and work.

    America is relatively rather religious. Within the surrounding world (The Netherlands) religion has slowly faded, but in Limburg Catholicism still is in daily life. The church is therefor a true middle point of the villages of the countryside in this province.

    Well, every Dutch place has one, but the American snackbar is really American. They even have a statue of liberty and the commercials are shouting out Coca Cola. So, want to have American fastfood ... go to America!

    Favorite Dish: Patatje Oorlog ... ook heel Amerikaans tegenwoordig (-:

    They even have a statue of liberty!

America Nightlife

    In America there is no nightlife of serious matter. It has a café where one can have a drink in the evening and which is the centre of attention with carnaval, but ... also then many go to surrounding towns like Roermond, Weert or Helmond. Nightlife can of course be done in your own house, just by inviting the right people. This is also a guarantee for big success.

    Such house can easily become a discotheque!

    Some small countryroads lead to America. One - from Horst-Meterik - is quite scenic, passing some great examples of the Limburgian (and Dutch) variety in agriculture. Cattle-companies, horticulture, arable land and some little forests change the landscape when you drive by. It's the best way of getting to know the American territory.

    In front of the church there's a memorial stating the next line:
    "Leven en vrij zijn geschonken aan de Americaanse gemeenschap door C.V. "De Turfstekers" 12 november 1994"
    Translated it means:
    "Life and freedom, granted to the American society by the Carnavalsclub "The Peatstickers" 12th of November 1994.

    I wonder if all Americans know of this?

    A memorialstone to freedom.

    America, who wants to go there??? Well, I mean THIS America of course - hahaha. This Limburgian place is really not of interest to the average tourist in The Netherlands. It's maybe one of the reason's why one can find peace and quite as much as one needs in America.

    Favorite thing: Some fear it, but others know it will never happen: the end of America.
    Well, here it's just a fact (-:

    By the way ... David Bowie's version is also wonderful and the film it is linked to even more: The Falcon and the Snowman.

    This is not America ... anymore
