    The Westerpark is home to a popular late winter/early spring carnival, with numerous games-of-chance and stomach-churning rides. Colors, movement and smiling people!

    As Holland is very flat, there is nothing to stop the rain and wind when it comes. It does give great sailing though. I belive many Dutch enjoy this in their freetime.

    the Dutch respect you, try and do the same in return. Respect the culture by not being loud and obnoxious. When a big football (soccer) match occurs avoid crazed hooligans.

    Holland's population is about half Protestant and half Catholic, and there are some beautiful churches for both religions, in Amsterdam.

    Tulips in Amsterdam

    by nyperose Written Jul 27, 2012

    I saw these wooden tulips in many souvenir shops in Amsterdam and I thought they were so nice.

    From far away you don't even see that they are not real.
