Jasmin, my local Asian restaurant has small containers (about 1 teaspoon) of something they jokingly call "sauce" but in reality is pure pepper in liquid form.

I was told this morning that in Romenia they have no word for sneaker or sport shoe. Instead all sneakers are called Adidas.
"Sjonge jonge jonge". The most common sentence in Dutch that I don't understand yet. :)
Google translate says it means "Oh yes young" If I put "Tjonge jonge jonge" in Google translate it says it means "Wow young". Either way doesn't make much sense to me but the natives say that it has no real meaning, it's more of a shake your head while muttering "Oh, the young people's behaviour".

In The Netherlands you take a break from work, in Iceland you take a pause from work.
I finally have an internet connection here in the lower lands. In Iceland it generally takes 3-4 working days to get internet. Less if you request speedy handling. Here in The Netherlands it takes about one month.
