Apr-27-05  dac1990: Any Dutch people here?
Apr-27-05  aw1988: Partly Dutch, yes. I can't speak a word of it, unfortunately.
Aug-15-05  Edwin Meyer: I'm Dutch :-) And i'm also from Amsterdam :-)
Dec-22-06  Rubenus: I am also Dutch but I live in Ede (Gelderland).
Aug-13-07  weisyschwarz: I am Leningrad-Dutch.
Feb-01-08  sneaky pete: Hendrik Marsman: Amsterdam

De maan verft een gevaar over de gracht.
Ik schuifel elken nacht na middernacht,
in een verloren echoloozen stap,
rugelings schuivend langs de hemelschuinte,
de treden der verlaten wenteltrap
van de ontstelde ruimte.

  Stonehenge: Je bedoelt zeker <ruggelings> :)
Feb-04-08  sneaky pete: <ruggelings> indeed, sorry.
Feb-04-08  square dance: sweden's finest, peter, bjorn and john, singing about amsterdam.
Feb-19-09  swarmoflocusts: There should have been the City of Amsterdam vs. Morphy. Then again, perhaps not. After all, Garry Kasparov defeated the world; poor Amsterdam surely would not have stood a chance against Paul Morphy.
May-02-09  Dredge Rivers: Red Lights and Mary Jane. What's not to love?
