Het Parool

Regular readers who picked up a copy of Het Parool this morning might have been more then a little surprised to discover this article as they slowly read through its pages with their morning coffee:

Het Parool Interview

Hopefully you did not have your mouth full of coffee at the time otherwise it might have gotten quite messy. I know I was both shocked, happy and delighted when they contacted me and asked if I would like to do an interview. It is a huge honour.

If you read the news paper today and are visiting Invading Holland for the first time; Welcome. My name is Stuart and it is a pleasure to meet you.

    I was one of the Dutchies reading “Het Parool” and got pleasantly surprised by the “Invading Holland” article.

    Being abroad a few times a year, it is sometimes hard to explain the people I meet there about those typical Dutch things you – and your commenters – ran (and still run) into. Heck, at times I’m flabbergasted into things I run into myself, and I seem to be a native around here (though with Wilders, I’m not so sure any more).

    Congrats with your bloggies nomination. I will certainly vote for your blog!

    And thanks to all the commenters, as their contribution is a very integral part of your blog.

    Congrats you are definitely one of the best in the small community of expat bloggers. You’re an inspiration when I don’t feel like writing I look at your blog and try drawing.. only stick figures. You deserve the attention and recognition even if they are 7 years late. Keep up the good work.
