I'm a New Zealander married to a Dutch man. We left Holland in August 2006 with our two little boys to live in Singapore. Two and a half years later we're back in the Netherlands, trying to adjust to life in the Low Lands after loving the tropics. At least life is never dull!

So that's how it's done...this is Carl enjoying a traditional Dutch treat, a herring. Actually it's a raw herring. As I undersand it, the fish monger basically deheads, guts and scales the fish, and removes the bones. It's then eaten either like this, bite by bite, or if you're feeing slightly less daring, on fresh white bread sprinkled with finely chopped onions. Mmmmm, that would have to be a major Listerine moment!
Carl loves them and he and his Dad often share one for lunch in the weekend. He had me take this photo to email to Holger who was offshore in Brazil at the time, to make him jealous. Go figure!
