You having grown up in the U.K explains why you don't know what I mean :lol:



On top of the lack of the community 'spirit', there is clear ethnic segregation.

I've heard tons and tons of Dutch Somalis say this.. The way they described and talked about the old country *the Netherlands* made it sound like a out of this world paradise, but when I finally saw it first hand, walahi I was beyond shocked, it was laughable.. I blame them for getting my hopes up ruunti. The only thing praiseworthy was the transport system, even though their trams are wack.. :|

Even Amsterdam was a let down, I honestly believe its the most overratted place on this earth.

We actually have four distinct seasons :lol:


We do too. :|

Don't shoot down London just because you holidayed in Brick Lane sxb. :lol:


You should spend a year in NL. you'll see our seasons are much more distinct. Your summer is like a warm autumn and your winter is a cold autumn :| In NL on the other hand the summers your;re looking at almost always between 25- 30, winters you're looking at Proper SNOW.

What's this brick lane :?

:lol: :lol: Now your just responding for the sake of responding :| The U.K will never be on the same level as the beautiful and affluent Nederland. What did you find laughable ( :lol: ) about it ? I must say the public bus system in the U.K is very good too :up:

The ethnic segregation is not as bad as USA, that being said, I rather it be this way. Assimilating means, losing your dhaqan. Since most Somalis are not middle class, if we integrated we would end up like Jamaicans and Chavs. That is counter-productive sxb. :lol:

With all it's greatness and integration of NL Somalis, your government is more racist and right-wing than ours. The force you to become Mr Johnson so that they can give you a Ducth nationality. VVD aren't even that bad, watch worse people take office in the near future. :lol:

When you say community spirit, what do you mean? Knocking my neighbor's door and offering them cookies? :lol:

NL can never measure up to London sxb.

Walahi I'm being serious..
I found everything laughable.. Like I said its mainly because the Dutch folks in the UK overhyped the place.. It looked like a cheap version of the UK to be honest.. :|
Rotterdam was aiight though, weird, but better than the capital, even though the retail centre/sector was :down:
What cracked me up was.. there was a store in Rotterdam called 'British style', something along them lines and all I saw was a bunch of cadaan/madow youths in it dressed like typical chavs.. :lol: Comeon now.. :|

The multi-culturalism of the U<K is one of the things that intrigue me about the place. Its probly the safest place for ethnics in future years to come no doubt.

As for knocking on your neighbours cookies, that you find that a joke again shows you grew up in U.K. I can't be bothered to elaborate but google it to know what I mean.

Cheap version of U.K :shock: Inalillaah allah beenta where did you go cuz it doesnt sound like NL. Some small shop you saw somewhere in the great city of Rotterdam means little. NL >>>>>>> United nany state benefit Kingdom. Chavs, binging goths are quintessentially British.

Je bent niet de enigste, ik was naar engeland verhuid toen ik 13 was. Ik ben nu 25, ik ben de regels voor de 't' 'dt' 'd' vergeeten. For example, is het 'verhuid', 'verhuist' enzofoort.

Caynaba, ben jij een kerel of een meisje?



Toen ik voor het laatst naar de WC ging had ik in ieder geval geen kutje. :lol: :lol: :up:

Je beheerst het Nederlands nog best goed na 12 jaar, er zijn bekende van mij die in 2006 weg zijn gegaan (toen zijn ze zowat allemaal weggegaan) en de taal al na 5 jaar niet meer beheersen..
