If you come from a city where taking a taxi is quite normal and the prices are affordable, you might be surprised in NL. In this country, taxis are not used often, and the prices can be quite steep.

Unusual and Expensive

This is so, that most people I know have never taken a taxi in Amsterdam for example, only in unusual moments such as to go or return from the airport in some situations (I include myself in this list).

You will hardly ever see a Dutch just stopping a taxi because they are late to a meeting (this is almost impossible anyway) or because it rains. You will most likely see them using their bicycle, public transport, or walking.

So, there you go, another one of what I consider interesting small details about the Netherlands!

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time selecting
between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your design seedms different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I hadd to
ask!
