Photo from one of my favourite blogs, A Flamingo in Utrecht (http://oranjeflamingo.wordpress.com/), Greg Shapiro is an American comedian who has lived in the Netherlands for... Long enough to know enough about NL ;-) For nearly 20 years, he's brought laughs with Boom Chicago & Comedy Central to the Netherlands.

Sucess! Pickled Beet Eggs: however, I didn't follow this particular recipe, the recipe I wanted to pin didn't have a picture. Recipe followed was "The Mama's Pennsylvania Dutch Red Beets and Eggs" from food.com. Almost identical to my mom's recipe, and the longer you let it sit in the frige, the better.
In Amsterdam's Schiphol's Airpot toilets, each urinal has a fly in it. Look harder, and the fly turns into the black outline of a fly, etched into the porcelain. It improves the aim. If a man sees a fly, he aims at it. Fly-in-urinal research found that etchings reduce spillage by 80%. It gives a guy something to think about. That's the perfect example of process control.
Allotment gardens - You can find these in the Netherlands (singular: volkstuin; plural: volkstuinen). In some cases, people are allowed to live in them during the summertime. More about these here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allotment_(gardening)#Netherlands
