Re: Moving to The Netherlands, Tell Me What to Expect!
I LOVED my visit to the netherlands, Leiden a bit more than amsterdam. I mastered 1 phrase..."wat jammer" which seemed to work well in any dutch conversation i was stuck in the middle of. I was much inspired by the concept of the hofje and built my home here in that style. the people aren't what i call nice but they were very kind which is very comforting in my book. I am tall for an asian woman so it felt nice to feel tiny for a while. expect dutch treats, a heightened sense of propriety, no nonesense discussions about money and something i can only describe as "cold warm attitudes". the older folk struck me as a bit more wary and prejudiced but not more than any other older person anywhere else. It's a wonderful place worthy of much respect.

Oh, I thought it just opened. Oh well, I like the fact that the Dutch are so supportive of bicycling.


The other Dutch poster is incorrect that it almost collapsed ..lol...

It is just a few minutes from where I live :)


Yes it just opened in the summer
The roundabout was opened on June 29th, 2012 in an afternoon of festivities.

it is called Hovenring ... and sounds phonetically like "hovering" = to hover over
or a ring that levitates ...
funny coz we also have a UFO [the Evoluon, used for science expositions and business meetings] in Eindhoven.

Norway also has such a ring :
The Stavanger cycle ring with the exact same diameter (72 meters) as the Eindhoven ring.
