Holland

So, allot of people who are commenting on my blog, are intrested in the weed in Holland. Now, as you probabibly guessed, I like the weed. But I will dedicate my passion at the end of this read.

What's Holland also known for? Well as LittleGiantBomb (add me on twitter btw: Dristhi741, send you a tweet, but got no response, didn't know if your read it) mentioned, we as Dutch guys love the cheese and "drop". So what is that? "Drop" can I ask the people who're not from the Netherlands to pronounce this word out loud? My translation site translates it to: liquorice extract don't know if that gets you any further. Wait, let's put an image to give you an idea what it is.

So, that's "Drop". And you probably all know what cheese is, and I love it!

What's more in Holland, besides the weed and the cheese & drop? Maybe we're famous for our Soccer (or as I like to call it: Football) team. This year we even reached the finals. Maybe you all witnessed that game. Hope not, it was imbarrasing because of the hard play by the "Oranje Leeuwen (Orange Lions)". Especially by Nigel the Jong of course. I pitty it every day that we didn't win that game, because I was in my city where I go to college, watching the game with a lot of other students in a bar, could have been one hell of a night, but too bad. Because we lost, I went to go and smoke some weed with a friend of mine.

That's a nice starter for the part about weed: first of all, I'm so glad I was born in the Netherlands, but not only because you can get your weed everywhere, smoke it at home and it still isn't illegal, there are more things in Holland which you can enjoy (maybe I'll get to those one day). But weed: yeah it's incredible. I'm not an addict, but I smoke it often. Most of the times with my roommate, playing FIFA '11 and can't stop laughing, sometimes I smoke it with my friends from my birthtown, then I argue all the time about stupid things who don't even matter. But it's fun tough.

So weed, why is weed so beloved? Because it chills you out, because you don't give a crap about what you have to do all day, it takes away your worries and makes everything pretty and funny. That's why. I'm not suggesting everybody should smoke weed day in day out, but if you want to try so: go ahead, it's nice!

Hope the comments can get me started for my next story.

Feel free to comment about my English, I hope it's oke, but when people point out my faults I wont do them again.

Cheers

  12. Aaah yes..other things that are "Legal" but are illegal in the USA..prostitution for example. I love how the Netherlands doesn't make illegal "victimless" crimes such as prostitution. (Both parties are involved in a choice in entering the deal more often than not) and it being legal for the woman to enter the business herself, eliminates any need for pimps, therefore lowering the violence against them and others.

  20. We have licorice in the US, which I'm assuming is the same as drop, but I don't know many people (besides my grandmother) that actually enjoys eating it. I guess people here like their candy bars or something.
