Cuisine

Traditionally, Dutch cuisine is simple and straightforward, with many vegetables and little meat; breakfast and lunch are typically bread with toppings while dinner is meat and potatoes, supplemented with seasonal vegetables. The Dutch diet was relatively high in carbohydrates and fat, reflecting the dietary need of the laborers whose culture molded the country, and contains many dairy products. Without many refinements, it is best described as rustic, though many holidays are still celebrated with special foods. In the course of the twentieth century this diet changed and became much more cosmopolitan, with most international cuisines being represented in the major cities.

Goodlooking Dutch females - From the most libaral region of Europe

Nearly everybody must have heard from the Netherlands and the most known city Amsterdam. Holland has the mark of being the most liberal city of the entire planet. In the centre you have Soft drugs bars and pubs and a lot of  bars with a wide scale of different music and bands. There are even some other cities like den Hague and Rotterdam which are Worldwide known because of all the events, entertaiment and huge organised parties these cities attract millions of yearly public. Freedom of speech is one of the most important things how the dutch want to live their life. Obviously it's not strange that all hot women from the netherlands think the same about these subjects. Being a nice dutch women menas they are very liberated and love to express theirselfs in a very modern and straight forward way. In the Netherlands you will find women with way different way of clothing, ways to dress their hair and other specific dutch things you will not find around. 

 

Typical about dutch women

• Goodlooking Dutch females are rather easier then the western europe average. They do not find it necessary to spend a lot of money on their appearances and weekly manicures are almost unheard of among these women. In other words, they do not spend hours piling on make up and dressing themselves up like other feminine cultures.

• All the dutch women do not mind to go in short pants in public. Even some dutch females go very extreme in their dressing codes, but the end result is really stunning, wow dutch women are trully hot! Ofcourse most of these women are slimm and tall and are between 20 and 35 years of age.

 

• Most of all dutch women are skilled and high educated and therefor pretty independent. Even in sports and carreer women can compare with men easily. Most dutchies speak good english and embrace a good carreer instead of feeding the children from home.. They do not care to be traditional and marry at a later age. Cohabitation is popular and so is bearing children before marriage. These women do have manners however it is said that they have no issues with throwing them out the window in order to be like one of the guys. Dutch women absolutey think they are equal with dutch man, and all dutch think this should be the way to live in the entire world.
