Meet me in Amsterdam on the 4th of July, 13:00 at the entrance of the Van Gogh Museum!
So many people think I am German because I speak German and lived in Germany for 2 years but I actually have no German blood but rather am Dutch, 3/4 Dutch – Van Gimert and Van Weelden respectively. I am very excited about returning to the Netherlands. Back in 1998 I did a biking tour thru the Netherlands looking for my forefathers tombstones but did not have any luck. In any case, I am very excited about return to my homeland!
My Grandparents here in America actually spoke a bit of Dutch but unfortunately I did not spend enough time around them to pick it up. My high school had German which was about as close as I could get to German so I studied it.
