Sorry to be a stickler here but the USA doesn't end in the east at New York. There are actually six other states to the east of New York. Connecticut, Rhodes Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Maybe I'm a little sensitive on this point since I've hardly met anyone in the Netherlands that knows where my home state of Maine is.
Oh come on. Lol
yeah that is kinda how i felt but for his part They are Very Nice States! but i would not expect a Dutchie to know beyond anything in Pop Culture so i didn;t fuss over it
Having a Dutch hubby i have learned to kinda listen behind what they are saying to what they are meaning a bit. I wish the dutch would be so kind my G's are just not hard enough for them to comprehend anything i say LOL now i know how the belgians feel
