When I arrived and landed my first time,
Starship had a number one with this!

We built this city!

Cool song I had it on my casette player in the plane
when I landed!

I know I am getting old! lol

Casette player? Man, those days are over, eh? I always liked that song. Same with Born in the USA. Oldies but goodies.

So is this a reality show in Holland? Or is it on YT? I think I saw some other episodes on YT. Thanks for the link.

I came to US as a political refugee from Poland in 1976, with grandiose vision and ideas about the Land Of Free. Slowly this onion got peeled out to about a one string of chive.

Plus, it doesn't look to me like your cops beat the shit out of somebody and then haul them. I've watched YT videos of arrests there. The cops are pretty polite.

Well, okay. That's bad. But, it still isn't as bad as I've seen here. By the way Roxy, I just got banned from GLP. And a friend of mine got banned. So, I'm letting my subscription run out on the 24th. If you will email me, I'd like to keep in touch. My email is: GLPmessages@yahoo.com

Re: Moving to The Netherlands, Tell Me What to Expect!
Good news. I've found a potential roommate. However, this person only wants to live in Amsterdam. So, I'm switching to looking for a place to rent in Amsterdam. I can live anywhere because I only need a place for about 6 mos. (more or less) while I get settled.

We have agreed that each of us paying 200 Euro per month for 2 bedrooms is what we both can afford. I have no idea if this is even possible, but I'm willing to try.

If anyone has any ideas or a link to an agency, this is what I'm working on now. So many of the links for rentals in The Netherlands are for unregistered apartments and I am uncomfortable with that. I don't want to send a deposit and first month's rent to someone I don't know. (exception would be Roxy's neighbor)



Any suggestions are welcome. Hope everyone has a great day!

(Thought it'd be fun to see a bunch of happiness so posted all the emoticons. Well, GLP wouldn't let me post all of them so I'll see how many I can post, heh)

It's been mentioned. I guess it's bad. I am surprised people don't have to scoop it up just out of courtesy. You can bet, if I see someone not scooping it up, I'm gonna say something to them. And they won't like it either.

You can expect to be kicked out in 3 months or arrested as being an illegal alian. You can't just move to the Netherlands from the US. Are you applying for your MVV? Do you have the proper work visa's in order?

Re: Moving to The Netherlands, Tell Me What to Expect!
When I lived in a communal house here in Toronto, we would sometimes put roommate wanted ads up on craigslist. People from Europe would email all the time, inquiring about our place. I would send them a nice message saying that we had to meet everyone who lived with us first, before they moved in.
OP, you will have much better luck just going there, and looking for a place once you are there. Put your stuff in storage, take a minimal amount, and just go! You can always get your stuff shipped if you want it so badly. Very few people want to rent to someone they haven't met. Stay in a hotel/hostel for a week, look around, focus all your energy on finding a good place, go to lots of meet n greets etc. and FOR SURE you will find somewhere to live.

Ruigoord has become a very small community, - about 1/10 of its original size - and they hardly ever let 'strangers' live there, let alone squat a place, which are not available anyway.

Thank you Roxy. I kinda figured that out after I looked into it. I imagine they are a pretty tight knit community. I think it's great what they have done but can you imagine after all they have been through, all the people that would like to show up there and get a place to live? They would be over-run in no time.

My favorite part is the crosswalks turn the light red almost instantly for half the road, and the other half stays green. When you get in the middle you click another button and in changes the other side to red and the one behind you to green, also almost instantaneously.
