Gotta love all things Dutch. Good job with the type-ins, especially accepting the Dutch word for the shoe and the proper name of the neighbourhood. A nice varied lot of questions.

The allowed type-in for the lake is not correct. The IJ is another lake. It's just a very small part of the old lake (close to Amsterdam) and used to be part of the IJsselmeer until we closed off half the lake by a dike (cause that's what we Dutch do!). The IJ lake is definitely not part of the dark blue area on the map...

Thank you for not putting a picture of a marijuana plant. So many people seem to think the Netherlands is nothing more than legalized drugs and prostitution.

stroopwaffels are different from Belgian waffles. They have caramel and are thin. Whereas Belgian waffles are like big waffles (like Chicago deep dish pizza).
