    So, my computer instructor is currently telling us about his home town of Leeuwarden (Ljouwert). I was curious where our friends in Holland lived.

    One last thing, one of my new favorite words is Waag. It was a weighing scale in his home town. And....spelling is gonna be off....Kanselrij. The courthouse, or something like that.

    That town is in a different country, atleast all of holland thinks that way about Friesland. When i was there to meet a mate i could barely understand the dialect used there. that is not dutch thats just well i dunno wierdness.
    Though it makes me laugh allot.

    Feel free to type something here in Dutch, Dante. Maybe I'll e-mail it to Mr. Mulder.

    I showed Mr. Mulder what you said and he said "They think we speak a different dialect, but that's the problem. We don't speak the same language as they do. They speak Dutch, we speak Friesian. That's why then never understand what we say." It seems that there is a lot of hostility between the two states, so let's just leave it at that lol.
