Only In The Netherlands…

I probably should have a series of posts like this. There are times when I look at things in my adopted country, and think to myself (often with a smattering of pride or alternatively, complete incomprehension): “Only in the Netherlands…”

Here’s a case in point, It’s an advert designed to get gay people (because it was on the back cover of the most recent issue of the Gay Krant – the Dutch magazine for gay folks) to apply to become members of the Dutch police force. Translated, it says: “Police, captivating work! – also for you?”. I should perhaps point out that this advert is one of those that I feel proud of.


The gentleman in the picture is Hans Klok, a Dutch magician.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
