I've just returned from Portugal where I was working for a week. It is interesting to notice the differences between the Netherlands and Portugal. The Portuguese are in much more of a hurry when driving, leaving less space between cars and more weaving around in traffic. The Netherlanders are, as I've pointed out few times, incredibly polite and tolerant. There are lots of mountains and hills in Portugal but The Netherlands are, as most people know, very flat. There are many similarities. People of both nations use scooters a lot, and most people speak English although The Netherlanders have slight edge there.
