It's been so so so cold lately in the northern part of the Netherlands. In combination with rain, this leads to all kinds of winter fun. The wet streets in the provinces of Groningen, Drenthe and Friesland are completely frozen. So what do you do as a Dutchman when cars and bicycles aren't an option? You ice skate!
In response to right-winged politician Geert Wilders' comments about wanting less of them around, Dutch Moroccans took up their smartphones and created the hashtag #Bornhere. With their Dutch passports in hand, they show there's no way this politician is getting them out of the country.
The Netherlands and Holland are the same, right? Nope, Holland is just a combination of two provinces. And there's so much to explore in the remaining ten!
