    This is for you Americans.
    What do you know or think to know about BeNeLux ??? For example do you know what the capitals of Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourgh are ??? If they are kingdoms or republics etc.
    What kind of food we eat, how the weather is like, what kind of clothes we wear, what kind of houses we live in, how our countries look like, do you know any famous people or cities from the BeNeLux, or do you know anything about our culture or our history...stuff like that.

    I'm just curious about what you all know and the prejudices you all have :p...

    EDIT: Fixed the title.

    Not much really :D...
    As long as you all don't think that the Dutch are always wearing wooden shoes and that there are mills and tullip fields at every corner and that the Belgians eat chocolate and fries all day long :D...

    What university in the Netherlands did you wanted to go to ??? :)

    I still can, for the right amount of ??? ;)...

    I've never have been in Maastricht (well, only drove quickly through it once or twice) but I've heard it's a beautiful town to live in.

    Maastricht is the Hardcore Punk Capital of the Netherlands...

    (Don't think anyone listens to that, but well)

    Not the Punk capital, more like the Hardcore capital. And I label it Hardcore Punk because I don't know which is the first thing you think of if I just say Hardcore.

    (for example just try and type "Hardcore" in an internet search engine)

    But which bands do you listen, then? (because I listen to punk as well...)

    What, Flyingseal?

    Efteling is a fun place to go! :p

    Well, jainasolo11sticks, I´m planning on going to the Celebration III. I´m in this group, the Jedi Outcasts, and we´re all going to meet there. So, yeah, I´ll go to the states eventually. :)

    LMAO...

    Six Flags (anywhere in the world lol) is not even on the same level of awsomeness as Cedar Point when it comes to Roller Coasters :) It holds so many records its not funny. Most other parks fight to keep up with them. :)
