What is the legal age of buying alcohol here in Holland? My son wants to go up to the Hague on a Friday night with a group of other children from the BSN and I was wondering what the legalities of buying alcohol were?

I have said that my daughter can have her ears pierced. Can you recommend a clean, hygienic place I can take her to?

Is'nt wonderful how we can just get on our bicycles and go to the local shops without hardly worrying about cars and other traffic. I can cycle almost all the way on cycle paths, and some of this past fields, away from the road quite safely. I have my little basket on the front for my shopping, as do most other ladies off to do their daily shop. Its like going back 40 years compared to the UK. No wonder Holland is called the shopping basket society and the supermarkets are so small. Doris

We are still trying to decide which is the best school for our kids who will be starting here in the fall. Some say the British School is ok, bit 'flash and cash' and there seems to be more money on fronting and promotion rather than extra curricular activity. I also hear the American School is better orientated to sports and team participation. I've heard nothing about the International School. Any help would be appreciated

Hi, I'm new to Holland and have enrolled my kids in the BSN even though I'm from the USA. I love the school uniforms, we don't have those over in the states. It makes life so much easier, no - 'wheres my Nikes mom', the kids have to put on the same clothes every day. OK, it may be taking away the childs individuality but it sure makes our lives as parents a whole lot simpler. J
